A timely and eccentric musical that serves up water ballet, dancing jungle animals and singing butt puppets to explore the politics of Aids-scapegoating. A 170-year-old Victorian sexologist and explorer is producing a sensational museum display about Patient Zero, the French-Canadian flight attendant accused of bringing Aids to North America. There's only one hitch: the ghost of Patient Zero is back in town and he's determined to stop the misrepresentation in the display. Antagonistic and yet attracted to one another, they encounter the Aids pariahs, the ACT UP media committee, a chain-smoking African Green monkey and the tiara-wearing Miss HIV. Together, they sing, swim and sashay their way through the mass media's hysterical headlines, fighting back and refusing to take the blame.
