Four 12’ x 12’ panels of The AIDS Memorial Quilt will be displayed in the PlayMakers lobby throughout the run of Angels in America, including 2 early pieces in memory of Roy Cohn.
Established in 1987, The NAMES Project Foundation – the international caretaker of The Quilt — works to preserve, care for and use The AIDS Memorial Quilt to foster healing, advance social justice and inspire action. The Quilt began in San Francisco more than 20 years ago with a single 3 x 6 foot panel and today this epic tapestry of hope and love includes more than 47,000 panels. These panels have come from every state in the nation and have been created by friends, lovers and family members in an attempt to transform loss and heartbreak into hope and healing.
To see the panels, just stop by the PlayMakers lobby anytime between February 2 and March 6. And while you’re there, why not check out a performance of Angels in America?
