As Is
By William Hoffman

William Hoffman’s landmark Drama Desk-winning and Tony-nominated play was among the first to explore how the AIDS pandemic affected the LGBT community. The play tells the story of a man’s life turned on its head after he is diagnosed with AIDS – who he turns to, who turns away from him, and how the world reacts to the beginning of the crisis.
