The work is inspired by the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt and Edgar Lee Masters' "Spoon River Anthology." The piece was developed in the late 1980s and was originally titled "The Quilt."

 

 

Dramatic, powerful and emotionally intense, Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens celebrates those have lost their lives to AIDS. Through a series of heart-rending monologues, hear the struggles of various people who have battled with the disease. Each coming from very different walks of life, every character has their own unique story to share, but one tragic link in common. Interspersing these stories are the poignant and uplifting songs from the victims' loved ones, reminding us that AIDS affects the lives of more than the individual sufferers.
