Directed by Ryan Whitfield.
Written in 1985, A Quiet End was one of the earliest dramas to deal with the AIDS crisis in the United States. Three men, a teacher, an aspiring jazz pianist and an unemployed actor, are in a rundown Manhattan apartment. All have lost their jobs and are shunned by their families; they have AIDS. Their interaction with a psychiatrist heard but not seen throughout the play and the entrance of an ex-lover healthy yet unsure of his future provide a forum for exploring the meaning of friendship, loyalty and love. By celebrating the lives of men who, in the face of death, become fearlessly life embracing, the play explores the human side of the AIDS crisis.
Author, Robin Swados, will be in attendance at the Saturday, September 27th performance!
And representatives from ARcare and the Arkansas AIDS Foundation will be in attendance for talk-backs after every performance to discuss living with HIV, prevention, and testing.
