33.4 million people live with it


And the local play ‘The Hospice’ confronts it.

Not too long ago, the modern medicine conveniences and information we possess as a society were limited. According to aids.gov, 33.4 million people across the globe are currently living with HIV/AIDS. Help that number come down by educating yourself and promoting awareness.

Yesterday was World AIDS Day, a day set aside for striving toward an AIDS-free world, but opportunities exist in our community so you can get involved.

Tonight and tomorrow, “The Hospice” continues its run from Theatre Collective, a new theater group to OKC's growing community. “Hospice” delves into homosexual communities pre-HIV/AIDS awareness and drugs. This play is a challenging and hard-hitting piece of Oklahoma work. It's written by local lawyer Mark Henricksen and directed by Daniel Leeman Smith, the troupe’s artistic director.

Check out “The Hospice” at the City Arts Center at Fair Park, 3000 General Pershing. Shows start at 8 p.m.
