Read in July, 2007

I picked up this play and found it so enthralling that I didn’t put it down again until I finished both parts. This is a profoundly moving work that somewhat confusingly weaves through a ridiculous number of different topics, including but not limited to: American politics (particularly Neoconservatism), the burgeoning HIV/AIDS epidemic, being gay in America, religion, the plight modern man, suffering, and getting on with life despite suffering. Though beautifully written and with sharp dialogue, it’s somewhat heady and complicated, so I’m looking forward to renting the HBO special and taking another stab at figuring it out.
