His ravaged appearance shocked the world. At the same time another old friend, Elizabeth Taylor, was beginning a crusade to raise awareness of the little-understood AIDS.Tracy Ann Obermans new play is inspired by these events, imagining how they might have played out and exploring the relationships between Hollywood icons - the professional virgin, the all American man and the woman condemned as an erotic vagrant by the Pope.It marks the end of one Hollywood era and the start of another, presenting a vivid snapshot of stardom and sexuality, love and loss.
