These are the tales that make up this year's THE BLOOD BROTHERS PRESENTâ€¦ series, Nosedive Productions' annual October horror show. James Comtois (COLORFUL WORLD, THE ADVENTURES OF NERVOUS-BOY), Qui Nguyen (FIGHT GIRL BATTLE WORLD) and Mac Rogers (UNIVERSAL ROBOTS, HAIL SATAN), three of New York indie theatre scene's hottest playwrights write three new stage plays based on stories by the Master of Horror, Stephen King.
In addition to these one-acts, the evening will also present vignettes based on King's "Survivor Type," "Paranoid: A Chant" and "The Last Waltz." The evening will be directed by Pete Boisvert and Patrick Shearer.

IS WHAT YOU'VE HAD ALL ALONG?
Four men, one disease, and astonishing heart set the stage for a journey that will alter your perspective on an epidemic that continues to affect every community in the world. For the first time in almost two decades, The Rapscallion Theatre Collective brings Robin Swados's A Quiet End back to New York. Up-and-coming director Tom Rothacker directs the script, which has been freshly revised by the playwright especially for this production.
Taking place in the early 1980s, A Quiet End explores the lives of three men—a teacher, an aspiring jazz pianist and an unemployed actor—sharing a rundown apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side. All have lost their jobs, all have been shunned by their families, and all have AIDS. The unexpected appearance in the apartment of an ex-boyfriend—uncertain about his own future—opens a poignant and thought-provoking evening of theater that explores the meaning of friendship, loyalty and love. By celebrating the lives of men who, in their most dire moment, become fearlessly life embracing, A Quiet End displays an abiding affection and generosity of spirit for the foibles, imperfections and, ultimately, quiet heroism of its quartet of protagonists.
