    Hoke doesn't play it safe. She perfectly captures the tension and division between gay men of different generations. The playwright got Andrew right in voice and attitude -- these clueless young men/twinks are out there. What could've been a clinical encounter becomes one of unexpected intimacy and compassion -- wow. As a gay man, thumbs up, she got it right. If you're producing a gay short play festival consider this brutally accurate play.

    Intense, intimate, and truthful to the bone. I wish more plays would tackle this subject matter and promote not only knowing your status but getting tested regularly. Great job, Donna!

    The difference between hooking up and intimacy is as simple as taking a test, and the vulnerability necessary to do so changes the two characters in this play from being passing strangers into friends or maybe more.
