Never Let Me Go chronicles the history of the AIDS epidemic in Sydney from the early ’80s as gay community groups mobilised to save lives and the Australian government fought religious dogma, moral crusaders and a fearful public to educate and quell a plague that could have ravaged many more.
Out of the fear and trauma, AIDS showed the world that gay men and women are human, with the same hopes, fears and capacity to love.
Set to a soaring ’80s soundtrack performed by an acapella choir, Never Let Me Go dramatises a tumultuous decade that saw the soldiers of AIDS fight fear with enlightenment and love.
This show contains strong language and adult themes.
