Not About Me is a memory play that takes audiences on a haunting journey through the mind of a playwright during Covid-19 lockdown. Long buried memories of friends lost to a mysterious “gay” disease come crashing into the present, and he is compelled to examine his artistic and political life in the theater. This play is a bittersweet meditation on how tragedy can unearth pain along with the treasures buried in the past.
