Over the course of the summer, in an idillic New England country house, eight gay men discover new depths to their friendship – in an ongoing journey throught the ups and downs of life. Full to the brim with moments of laughter, dissapointment, fulfilment and loss- Love! Valour! Compassion! is a heart stopping play, as funny as it is moving and celebrating, against all the odds, the joys of being alive. It is one of the finest pieces of American writing of the last decade.
