Davids Friend is the story of a crazy friendship in 1980s New York City -- a restless city
during a reckless time. Its a comic odyssey about cruising, disco, drag queens,
strippers, sex, love, loss, and AIDS, told with music, videos, costumes, characters, tall
tales and torrid truths.
Written and performed by Nora Burns with direction by Adrienne Truscott, dramaturgy
by Lucy Sexton, and visual collaboration by Len Whitney, featuring Billy Hough, this
fast-paced show is a multi-media celebration of friendship, fun, freaks, fag hags,
youthful passion, changing times, emotions, memories, Manhattan and music that
moves your feet to a disco beat.
