This play, from Oklahoma City playwright La’Charles Purvey, is a gritty snapshot of the effects of HIV and AIDS on a group where the topic of “the disease” is still considered taboo. The story introduces five black men from different walks of life who embody different aspects of a traditionally marginalized people trying to find meaning before they are consumed. Their Christmas party, and ours, celebrates courage, generosity, grace, survival, and hope.  (Contains mild language, violence, and adult themes)
