Counterpoint is proud to present Beirut by Alan Bowne, a dystopian love story that investiagtes the depth of human emotion, conscience and desire.

Beirut is a classic love story told through the darkest of lenses. Set in dystopian New York City in which the AIDS virus has become epidemic, the city has been split into two sections; the negative and the positive. Though the HIV positive are quarantined they live in comparitive freedom compared to the negative. Two young lovers, a positive and a negative, fight in this dark reality for what they want, what they need and what they think is right.

Alan Bowne’s amazing text extrapolates and highlights the fear and anxiety caused by the AIDS epidemic in the 1980’s, while also creating a gut-wrenchingly evocative love story about two lovers who want nothing more than to be with each other.

This two hander is brought to life by one of Dunedin’s best young talents Aaron Mayes and co-starred with New York born and bred and American Academy of the Dramatic Arts trained Lindsay Astarita.
Taking place in the Anthaneum Theatre Basement, preapre to be transported into a theatrical space and world rarely seen in Dunedin and experience a play more gritty, gripping and evocative than you’ve ever seen before.

Cast:
Aaron Mayes and Lindsay Astarita
