Marvin’s Room

SUMMARY
Ever since its debut on stage in New York in 1991, Scott McPherson's Marvin's Room has won universal acclaim for its refreshing take on the power of love, the meaning of family and the value of caring during the deepest struggles of life and illness. This hilarious and heartwarming expression of humor over despair, loving kindness over recrimination, and the simple joy of innocence over cynicism is a story about the years that keep us apart and the moments that bring us together. McPherson's insight was enhanced by his own experiences taking care of his lover, who was dying of AIDS, and his own subsequent positive diagnosis. Ultimately, McPherson and his lover succumbed to AIDS, but Marvin's Room remains behind as a testament, in McPherson's own words, 'to the power of giving yourself to someone else.'
