Test - A New Drama About the Do-It-Yourself HIV Test - Part of the Left Out Festival in April

Test - "Do you really want to know? Are you positive?" is a set of six 10-minute plays by Cheryl King and Bill Locasto.

New York, NY, April 06, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Do-it-yourself home testing for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, has arrived.

The Ora-Quick in-home HIV test-- the only one approved for over-the-counter use by the Food and Drug Administration that captures testing and results in one sitting -- hit drug-store shelves two months ago.

Within a few days of that event, Cheryl King and William LoCasto decided to write a set of 10-minute plays, entitled Test – “Do you really want to know? Are you positive?”

Each of these plays is about two characters taking the test – from the moment the package is opened until the moment the results are revealed. We see every kind of human reaction – good, bad, ugly and beautiful, and a powerful tension that carries us from the first to the last word.

These plays will see their world premiere as part of the Left Out Festival, an annual festival produced by Stage Left, taking place this year from April 20 – 30, at Stage Left Studio, 214 W. 30th Street, 6th floor. The festival is a benefit for Bailey House, which provides housing and assistance to people living with HIV and AIDS.

The cast includes Ms. King herself, TC Corwin, Joe Hutcheson, Mary Erwin, KC Weakley, Jeremy Neal, Anthony Romeo, Donny Repsher, Michelle Ramoni and Peter Daniel Straus.
