RECOGNITION / AWARDS

KCACTF: Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival New Play

This winner of the National Playwright's Award and the ACTF Musical Theatre Award is a moving and surprisingly funny account of one man's struggle with AIDS. The deceased functions as host and narrator, invisible among the friends and family assembled to pay him final respects. Hoping for a day when the shattered pieces can come together, he leads them on a journey of shared reminiscences.
