Kevin, a surviving activist from the front lines of the AIDS crisis, finds himself struggling to find his place and purpose in contemporary gay culture. When a gay fundraising event threatens to erase the history he was part of creating, Kevin's anger and passion are renewed and he is confronted with the challenge of how to motivate change in this new climate of visibility. Along the way, Kevin's raw and slightly unhinged methods provoke everyone who can help him, damage long friendships and eventually expose some dark secrets. Hilarious, sharp, and deeply moving, Still at Risk is a powerful look at the personal and political hazards of rewriting the past and one man's attempt to move forward.
Performances begin Thursday, March 7, 2019 for a limited engagement through Sunday, March 31, 2019 at the Community Space Theater at Theater for the New City (155 First Avenue, between 9th & 10th Streets).
