Friendships – Death – Gay men
I Say a Little Prayer follows the lives of 5 young gay men during the early years of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. We play out their sexual and romantic adventures as well as the story of how their friendship evolves over the course of several years in a community hard hit by the epidemic. Through “the lottery of death” we find out who of these friends will die before the story is over and how this shapes the lives of the survivors who live on. This is a game for those who enjoy playing stories about many-faceted relationships between people and you would like to play out emotional storylines in a fearless way. Players of any gender can play the game irrespective of all the characters in the game being men.
