Andrew Keates's acclaimed production of William M. Hoffman's AS IS has transferred to the Trafalgar Studios along with Matthew's 2013 score.
With a new stellar cast, (Steven Webb, David Poyner, Natalie Burt) the show has received a host of four and five star reviews.
In a mosaic of brilliantly conceived short scenes, some profoundly moving, some brightly humorous, AS IS captures the pathos of Rich’s relationship with friends and family, the cold impersonality of the doctors and nurses who care for him and the widely diverse aspects of New York’s gay community. A heartbreaking and unsparing examination of a deeply felt human relationship shattered by a mindless, destructive disease.
Matthew's score is available at iTunes, Amazon and Google Play for purchase. Proceeds go to @MADTrust
'Defiant where it could be self-pitying, raucous where it could be worthy: ‘As Is’ never blanches from the pain and suffering of Aids, but it also refuses to erase the joys of being alive and being in love.'
