Winner of the 1995 Tony Award for Best Play, Terrance McNally’s Love! Valour! Compassion! is a big, generous, haunted comedy that is both very funny and filled with intimations of time's passage, of loss and death.  Set in and around a beautiful Dutchess County farmhouse, eight gay men hash out their passions, resentments and fears over the course of three summer weekends.  In this beautifully written work, McNally presents humbling evidence of what human love is and can be. 

Love! Valour! Compassion! will feature professional performers from the community including, Jorge Acosta, Eric Davis, and, all of whom are donating their time and talents for the event.  This one night only staged reading is not to be missed.

The mission of The Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project is to raise awareness, provide assistance, and perpetuate a life of dignity for those affected and infected by HIV and AIDS.

Compassion will perform on the following schedule:  Tuesday, December 1, 2009 at The Studio @ 620, 620 1st Avenue South, St. Petersburg.  Doors open at 6:30, Curtain time is7 pm.  For further information contact The Studio @ 620 at (727) 895-6620.  To learn more about The Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project contact Garry Allan Breul, Artistic Director at 941/758-6399 or
