Mosaic Theater is producing Donja R. Love’s one in two this June. Love is a Juilliard-trained, self-identified Afro-queer, HIV-positive playwright from Philadelphia whose work is about and for Black and queer folx. Inspired by his own HIV diagnosis and the continued resilience of the LGBTQ community, Love wrote one in two while at Juilliard. The play’s name draws on the 2017 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, which concluded that roughly one in two Black men who sleep with men will be diagnosed with HIV at some point in their lives, a jarring statistic. The play follows three Black queer men sitting in an ethereal waiting room, inviting the audience to join them in a whimsical theatrical experiment. This production marks Love’s debut in D.C.’s theater scene and it’s truly one to watch: His work is on the cutting edge, timely, and harrowing in its tackling of contemporary issues. Mosaic Theater’s one in two runs June 1 through 25 at Atlas Performing Arts Center. $29–64. —Serena Zets
