TUESDAYS LIKE? is a small epic set entirely in the waiting room of a New York
AIDS clinic. In scenes long and short, Victor Bumbalo follows a handful of human
and female, white and black, gay and straight—over
the course of a deadly year. Nobody has shown more strongly how adversity can
drive good people apart and how courage and heart are needed to bring them back
together. Bumbalo's drama is tough yet tender, lean yet spacious, as clear as
water yet heartbreakingly powerful. It is a miraculous play.
Christopher Bram, author of Gods And Monsters and Exiles In America
AIDS plays written in the darkest days of the epidemic captured the pathos and
anger aroused by lives cut short against a backdrop of bigotry and indifference.
But few writers managed as gracefully as Victor Bumbalo to combine pathos with a
bracing jolt of comedy. His characters rage and weep but never allow the disease
to conquer their spirits, or their ability to laugh at themselves and the world.
WHAT ARE TUESDAYS LIKE? is a tender, funny, altogether gorgeous piece of work.
