"In Frank's Cock, a man talks about his friend Frank in a bold, funny, moving monologue about being born, living, fucking and dying as a gay man. Frank was queer from birth. He loved sex, he changed the world, and he died. Another of Hoolboom's casually brilliant pieces of writing, <i>Frank's Cock</i> is a sharp elegy to a lover lost to AIDS. Callum Rennie performs the monologue with appropriate wit and remembrance, and Hoolboom marries his words to a simple, formal design that incorporates abstract and pop styles.-Sandra Cunningham, Toronto International Festival
