Following Prodon through the five stages of acceptance – Denial, Partying, Loss of Control, Religious Conversion and Acceptance – I have AIDS! pops in and out of monologues with Prodon and into scenes with Lady Booty, an outrageous drag queen, Ron, a man who has made AIDS his personal religion and the ever-supportive Vidor, each giving their own advice on how to take the news. A black comedy like no other, I Have AIDS! is a play about gay men who are neither tragic nor sad, and we are led to laugh with them, not at them.
