This new verbatim play offers a unique and untold perspective of HIV and AIDS. In contrast to the existing canon of Australian HIV and AIDS-themed plays, this project directly explores the lives and experiences of women - the sisters, mothers, wives, friends, medical professionals, and volunteers who cared for those dealing with AIDS-related illnesses and hears from women living with HIV today.

Devised from interviews collected over the past two years with voices from across the nation, this verbatim theatre project honours these living monuments by celebrating their efforts and sacrifices and remembering those no longer with us. In their own down-to-earth and matter-of-fact way, our participants have shared a number of humorous, fantastic, and arresting stories that need to be heard - and not forgotten.

Featuring: Leah Baulch, Perri Cummings, Olivia Monticciolo and Jodie Le Vesconte.
