New York Fringe Festival Production (2011)


 

Wes Farley, a screenwriter known for having HIV, is enjoying national attention with his latest film. There’s only one problem: he's faked his illness for the past 10 years to boost his career, and is now slowly comprehending the drawbacks of his plan. With the help of his friend Josie, Wes revisits his past and sees how an ill-advised white lie early in life ensnared him in his current situation.

 


 

"An enjoyable, thought-provoking play brought to life by a very talented team." Theatre Is Easy

"A definite must see this FringeNYC."
New York Theatre Review

"Uses artful storytelling to show ambition at its most twisted and ethics at its lowest level." nytheatre.com 

 

"This story of a writer has several good moments, made all the better when his psyche steps onstage." New York Times  

 

"Infectious Opportunity, written by James Comtois and directed by Peter Boisvert, is a superb new, highly-original gem of a play with a very talented, highly-energized ensemble cast." NiteLife Exchange

Antidepressant Festival Production (2009)


 

"Comtois turns the perception of HIV+ on its head and makes it the mandatory element in building a successful career. What's more, he does so convincingly and with nuance in a neatly structured, witty drama populated with a talented cast. What more can you ask for?"
nytheatre.com

 

"Like any good roller coaster ride, Infectious Opportunity leaves the
audience with a racing heart, exhilarated, and a little bit
nauseated."
stagebuzz.com

 

"Well crafted and fascinating. David Ian Lee gives a fearless performance pulling no punches as Wes. Andrea Marie Smith is first rate."nyconstage.com

I particularly like the unusual offset position of the crown. The rolex replica sale comes in three models, one with a plane face, one with 6 diamonds located between the 3 o'clock and 6 o'clock position, and one with diamonds completely encircling the hublot replica. The Rado Cerix is a beautiful ladies watch for those who can afford it. A review of Rado watches can't overlook the rolex replica sale. The Rado V10K has to be one of the best wristwatches you can buy. For those looking for a rolex replica sale that stands at the forefront of technology, the Rado V10K stands out by a mile. The V10K is the most scratch proof watch ever made. The replica watches sale is made from 'hard diamond'. V10K actually stands for Vickers 10,000 - Vickers being a measure of hardness, with the scale going from 0 to 10,000; the ultimate value that only diamonds can attain; replica watches sale used this as a benchmark when developing the hardest watch in the world.
