About the Book
Simon and Bram were lovers for four years. They broke up in the spring, and Bram was diagnosed with lymphoma in the early summer. Bram dies in October. The play begins one month after Bram’s death. Through memory and imagination, Simon searches for truth as the play explores relationships, the quality of living, and the nature of love in a world of cynicism, fear, and AIDS. The poetry and movement of the play is a gift of forgiveness, hope, and healing.
