AFTER many delays due to Covid, playwright Terrence McNally’s award-winning Love! Valour! Compassion! opened at The Market Theatre in Johannesburg in November last year. Directed by Gregg Pettigrew and produced by Frans Swart Love! Valour! Compassion! comes to the Artscape Opera House from 1 to 12 February, with performances Tuesdays to Saturdays at 6.30pm, and matinees at 2.30pm on Saturdays.
Eight men confront their lives, loves and friendships over the three successive holiday weekends, at a farmhouse in Duchess County, New York. Winner of the 1995 Tony Award for Best Play, Love! Valour! Compassion! explores the lives, loves, and fears of eight gay men in the 1990s. Over the course of the summer, the men’s conversations touch on themes of infidelity, flirting, AIDS, skinny-dipping, and questions about life and death. It’s a comedy about some comparatively privileged gay people in a world whose problems are ultimately shared by everyone.
