Background / Biography:
One of the first plays to focus on AIDS, opened in New York City at the Lyceum Theatre, where it ran for 285 performances. Hoffman won a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play (1985) and an Obie Award (1984-85 for Playwriting ) and nominations for a Tony Award for Best Play (1985). The following year, he adapted the work for a television production directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg. (from Wikipedia
"The liveliest new work to be seen in several seasons. Mr Hoffman has written more than a documentary account of an AIDS victim's grotesque medical history . . . he reaches out to examine the impact of AIDS on heterosexual and homosexual consciences as well as to ask the larger questions (starting with "Why me?") that impale any victims of terminal illness." Frank Rich, The New York Times

"SAUL: You mean you take them home and don't tell them?
RICH: We do it there in the bar.
SAUL: How can you?
RICH: I lurk in dark corners where they can't see my lumps. I'm like a shark or a barracuda and I snap them up and infect them.
SAUL: How can you joke about this?
RICH: I don't care. I'm going to die! I'll take as many as I can with me. And I've pissed in the Croton Reservoir. I'm going to infect the whole fucking city. Wheeeeee!"
