“Let us give publicity to HIV and not hide it.” Nelson Mandela

In a suburb in Stockport, a husband and wife hide their medication from one another. A young woman in Harare, Zimbabwe, refuses to speak to her sister on the phone. A hospital nurse wears five pairs of gloves to treat a patient, no explanation given. If HIV is no longer a death sentence, why are we so scared of it?

I Am Because We Are is based on the testimonies of people living with HIV in Manchester today. Written by playwright and poet Cheryl Martin (Manchester Evening News award-winner, Polari Prize nominee) and produced by Contact Theatre, it looks past urban myths to uncover the hidden stories of daily life with the disease.
