The terrifying disease is everywhere, touching the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, Angel, Mark, Maureen, Joanne, and Benny in different ways. In the face of uncertainty, fear, and death, these friends find ways to love each other, and to love life.

This production is performed by our adult community theatre troupe, the Arts Hub Players. Is is approximately 2.5 hours long, including intermission. This production is rated PG-13.
