In AS I WAS, NOT AS I AM, twenty-something Laurel is sick, and her roommates want her to get better. How do you help someone who can't afford health care? Does it involve setting a car on fire? As I Was, Not As I Am is a hip, contemporary play about queer roommates, headaches, clubbing, upstairs neighbors, arson, and washing machines. But it's also about love - the kind that makes people do anything for each other.
