Short Synopsis

Robert, a young man, talks in a friendly way about his days as an altar boy. He then recalls when his nephew got AIDS early in the epidemic and how fundamentalists claimed it was God's punishment. Robert decides to go to heaven and ask God about this. Once there, God seems mean and ornery indeed and professes to give AIDS to homosexuals, hemophiliacs and Haitians in a bizarrely unfocused rage. Leaving heaven, Robert feels that whom he met wasn't God but an impostor. Adapted from the "AIDS Speech" in LAUGHING WILD, and rewritten to be performed by 2 actors, out of context of that play.
