AFTER ALL I DID FOR YOU, a comedy about a serious subject, examines the similarities/differences between gay male relationships and lesbian relationships and the love between men and women in an alternative sense – how do we connect when sex is not a goal or an obstacle?
Moving from the 1990s through the present day, the play centers on the long-term relationship between a gay male couple and a lesbian couple. These couples are each other’s favorite people, the best of friends – family, really – and through their decades long friendship, the play presents a specific and intimate history of the HIV/AIDS crisis and how it has impacted both the gay and lesbian communities.
AFTER ALL I DID FOR YOU explores themes of love, loss, and betrayal, while illuminating how living through trauma has repercussions that none of us can predict.
This play (and playwright) is one of the two selected for commission from our Fair Play Initiative – a commission program for LGBTQ playwrights made possible with support from OUR FUND.
