After Dinner Theatre - Jack

Saturday, November 14, 2020

A play written by David Greenspan. Directed by Trevor Comstock. Staged Reading. Written and performed in the middle of the AIDS epidemic, Jack tells the story of a man who is sick. A stilted and ethereal Greek Chorus recounts the story of a life cut short, highlighting the secrecy and shame surrounding discourse about HIV in its early days. The play premiered on May 27 in 1987, just before President Ronald Reagan made his first ever public speech about HIV and long after the epidemic had become "the new normal" for LGBTQ+ individuals. Contains some strong language.
