The musical focuses on Marvin, a gay man who has left his wife and son for his ex-lover, Whizzer. Whizzer becomes afflicted with a mysterious illness—which we know today as AIDS, but which was not yet named in 1981—and all seven characters are forced to reevaluate their relationships with each other as they come to understand what “family” really means.

The cast consisted of one Wellesley College student, two Babson College students, a 14-year-old from Sharon Middle School, and three local actors. Together with a renowned director from Chicago, they produced a four-day show.
