WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Originally entitled Herpes: A Corey Story, the show had a successful premiere in 2007 at downtown Manhattan's HERE Arts Center. Hailed as "a touching and hilarious one-man exploration of the diagnosis that changed everything" (nerofiddled.net), the show was embraced by audiences inside and outside the STD self-help community. During the course of the eighty-minute performance, Corey Moosa plays more than a dozen characters, including his Iraqi father, several members of a New York herpes support group, and Kurt Cobain. In addition to the wealth of medical information conveyed in the show, Moosa shares the advice of doctors good and bad ("He told me to Google it," he says in astonishment, recalling the initial diagnosis), and the wisdom of personal experience ("I'm here to tell you it is possible to adjust your opinion of yourself and the world you live in to accommodate any number of viruses"). Arriving at the conclusion that "shame is not an STD," he wrings pathos from comedy and comedy from pathos.
