About this show

Set in a New Jersey hospital in the mid-'90s, Freddie, an anxious, sharp-witted, gay New Yorker, had planned to tell his family about his HIV status. After his mother tries to commit suicide, he now has the perfect excuse not to. At the hospital, things quickly get tense in this forced family reunion as the siblings try to navigate old wounds while their father bullies them into making their mom promise to "never to do it again." Seeing his mother this way, Freddie fears his own death. He and his mother share drug-induced hallucinations. Hot Nurse Donny, the perfect escape, is a beacon of light helping Freddie see that with new breakthrough medication, he may not die, so he better figure out how to live. A witty, complex drama about facing fears, mortality, sexuality, spiritually, and trying to connect.
