THEATER: Before It Hits Home 

Friday, March 6

The Afro-American Cultural Center and Carolinas Black Pride Movement have teamed up for a production that touches on the AIDS epidemic through the life of one man (Wendel Bailey). In Before It Hits Home, Bailey, an African-American bisexual man in his early 30s, contracts HIV/AIDS, and his health spirals downward. Using his will power and a longing to survive, Bailey regains his health. But, when his loved ones throw him a party to celebrate his recovery, he gets less than he bargained for. What should have been a festive evening erupts into a choatic mess. Bailey, who needs support during this part of his life, now more than ever, ends up finding his encouragement from a source he didn't expect. Written by Cheryl L. West and directed by Jermaine Nakia Lee. Through March 7. $12. 7 p.m. Afro-American Cultural Center, 401 N. Myers St. 704-375-1565.
