An inspiring play about families and friends, living and loving in the age of AIDS. This play has had people laughing and crying everywhere it's played. It is an exploration of several families from vastly different cultures, all of which are dealing with AIDS in some way. Told through an ingenious dove-tailing of monologues, we feel that they and we are all part of a single family.

We meet a young, vibrant Hispanic girl, who recalls growing up with her favorite uncle Carlos, and how she gradually came to realize he had AIDS. We are moved by an Italian-American woman in her late 60's whose strong family values are never the same after her son admits he is gay and that he has AIDS. We hear from a 17-year old white male who is dealing with raging hormones and sexual responsibility. We eavesdrop on an African-American woman in her mid-40's as she recalls her early years with her soon-to-be-husband, who contracted AIDS from an extra-marital affair, and has given her the disease. And we observe an African-American man in his mid-30's reach into the hospital crib of his daughter, who is dying from the effects of her mother's drug addiction.

Living On...was originally produced by the New Repertory Theatre in Newton, Massachusetts in December, 1990 and was directed by Lois Roach.
