By Paul Donnelly
Directed by MFA Candidate Ron Heller
It’s 1992. AIDS and anti-gay hysteria are rampant. George is a doctor who has been watching his patients die. As a gay man himself, he understands the stigma and discrimination they face. How does he deal with the cold hard fact that he cannot offer them any effective treatment? When Evelyn, a drag queen who died years earlier, appears, is it a hallucination or is she an angel of mercy? Playwright Paul Donnelly mixes empathy with unsettling humor to deal with a difficult question – when a generation of young men is dying, and there is nothing you can do to stop it, how do you deal with that pain?
This is the first production of Memorial Day in Hawai’i.
