Seven one-act plays will comprise Millennium's A-Comin' - How AIDS Has Changed Us, a theatre evening to benefit the care organization, "God's Love, We Deliver." Presented by New Village Productions, the benefit will play five nights, Nov. 12, 13, 18, 19 & 20 at NY's Trocadero Cabaret Theatre on Bleecker Street.
The concept for Millennium stemmed from New Village's festival in winter 1995, "The Night Before The Day Without Art," which offered various one-acts and monologues in commemoration of International AIDS Awareness Day. "Most of the pieces had been staged by us before," artistic director Carol Polcovar told Playbill On-Line, "these were the ones we liked the most over the past three years."
Plays and monologues on the Millennium bill are:
When My Love Comes Along, by Kevin Brofsky, directed by Carol Polcovar.
The Boy's Mother, by Sidney Morris, directed by Keith Dougherty.
Fable, written & directed by Carol Polcovar.
1984 by Sarah Schulman, directed by Leonard Jacobs.
The World At Dusk, by Ramona, directed by Michael Allard.

Blame Me, by David Lefkowitz, directed by Louis Lopardi.
