Very powerful play, with a great cast. It is heard to believe that the reality portrayed in this play occurred not so long ago and not far away, but in the US and Canada. The play is heartbreaking and funny but able to make you angry that such negligence and wilful discrimination could have happened, let alone persisted for such a long time.
Studio 180 partnered with Buddies in Bad Times to present this play by Larry Kramer.
Actors worth noting in particular included Jonathan Wilson as Ben Weeks, Martin Happer as Bruce Niles, Ryan Kelly as Mickey Marcus and Jonathan Seinen as Tommy Boatwright. Sarah Orenstein was terrifically fierce as Dr Emma Brookner.
I definitely thought it was a standing ovation performance.
