2016 is the twenty year anniversary of when HIV medication saved lives around the world. In their new production, Dragonflies Theatre explore HIV amongst gay men through a series of interwoven stories:
Alex knows nothing about HIV but knew he should have worn the power bottom singlet. Nick is his Tinder date who's just been diagnosed positive, struggling with self-worth.
Their date is going amazingly until Nick discloses his diagnosis... And Alex reacts in the worst way.
Through meeting Irene, an Irish nurse who treated AIDS in the 1980s, and Barney, who was saved by the 1996 medication, Alex gets on PrEP, but will he be able to win Nick back?
Constructed with emotion, empathy and humour, written by Patrick Cash, directed by Luke Davies, 'The HIV Monologues' stars a talented cast including Denholm Spurr, Sean Hart, Charly Flyte, and Jonathan Blake, one of the first people to have been diagnosed with AIDS in the UK.
Coming to Miranda, Ace Hotel, 100 Shoreditch High Street, on Saturday 22nd, Thursday 27th and Friday 28th October.
