Thomas Bradshaw pulls no punches in this comic absurdist drama. At the height of what Time magazine dubbed “AIDS hysteria” in 1983, college student David invites his boyfriend home to his parents’ house in Virginia where nothing has changed since the 1800s—including the slave quarters. This darkly comic new play tackles race, sexuality, religion and the absurd but devastating nature of hate.
