"It's utterly contemporary; its one-liners are sometimes hysterical and are slammed home with style; it has genuine pathos that's only slightly tinged with sentimentality.” — The New York Times

Love! Valour! Compassion! is the 1995 Tony Award Winner for Best Play and the 1995 Drama Desk Award Winner for Outstanding Play. At a beautiful Dutchess County Farmhouse, eight gay male friends hash out their passions, resentments, and fears over the course of three summer weekends. The house belongs to Gregory, a successful Broadway choreographer now approaching middle age, who fears he is losing his creativity. Each of the guests at the house is conntected to Gregory's work in one way or another, from his costume designer to business consultants. Flirtations, infidelity, AIDS, truth-telling, and soul searching mix questions about life and death with skinny-dipping and a wild dress rehearsal of Swan Lake in drag.
