THE ESKIMO WAY - Ivy

New York City, New York

PLAY DESCRIPTION

In a communal household in San Francisco, one member with AIDS opts for euthanasia, and enlists the help of his four roommates, some not so willing, to throw a party and assist him in the actual act of dying.

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Ivy, used to being in control, is about to lose it. Ivy tries to accept friend Coco’s wish to commit euthanasia after a long bout with AIDS.

Subject Matter: Control, Friendship, Acceptance, Death, Euthanasia, AIDS

Note from Playwright: I met a person who was tangentially involved in the difficult situation which I embrace in the play, and I was fascinated by the inherent drama (and comedy) of someone wanting to die.
