Alan Bowne's stunner about love in the plague years.
It's "the near future"; we're in a dump of a room in the lower east side, where a young man named Torch has been quarantined after testing positive for a nameless disease. His girlfriend, Blue, who has not been infected, makes the dangerous journey across the quarantine line to be with him. He tries to keep her at room's length. For the next hour they argue lovingly, kiddingly, fearfully, bravely, desperately about sex and death. Torch pleads with Blue to leave before his resistance fails and he infects her. She believes "I can live without love and feel dead or risk death and feel alive."
Showtimes are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00, as well as 10:00 showings on First Friday the 5th, and Saturday the 6th. November 12th immediately following the 8:00 showing of Beirut is a CD release party and live performance of the music from the hit show The Oil Boiler, a production hosted by The Living Room in May 2010.
