Synopsis: 

Set in small-town America, OUR DAVID follows uneasy neighbors Velma and Clyde. Velma is a widowed grandmother and longtime resident. Clyde recently moved to town from New York City, looking for solitude after losing his lover and most of his friends to AIDS. The two widows quickly learn to distrust one another, and express it in a series of tragic and hilarious alternating monologues. That is until a tacky statue of Michelangelo’s David surprisingly brings them together.
