Take a Stand
Two Boys in a Bed on a Cold Winters Night is an allegory about the one-night stand. Set in New York in 1987 amid the dead heat of the AIDS epidemic, the acclaimed play follows two hunky, middle-aged near-strangers, Daryl and Peter, as they plunge into a night of fraught sex and secret-telling. As a New Yorker review put it, the men demonstrate how not to carry out a random hookup. Heres a pointer: Dont fool around with another guy while your boyfriend is in the hospital with late-stage AIDS.
