The New Group celebrated the official opening of the world premiere of Donja R. Love's one in two, directed by Stevie Walker-Webb, on December 10. Inspired by his 10th anniversary of being HIV positive, the Fireflies playwright's newest work offers an unflinching portrait of being Black and queer today.

In one in two, which began November 19, three young Black queer men are waiting to be chosen. When one of them is chosen (on any given night, a different actor takes on the central role), he’s forced to live a new reality inside an epidemic, exploring the joys, the gags, and the truths of not being defined by his diagnosis.
