Roz & Ray:
The gripping untold story of one doctor’s ethical struggle at the onset of the AIDS crisis in the 1980s. Dr. Roz thinks she’s found the right cure in a new miracle drug for Ray Leon’s hemophiliac twins. However, unspeakable tragedy strikes and it is discovered that Ray’s sons face immediate danger. Victory Gardens Theater presents this powerful new work by playwright Karen Hartman, that tells a tragic yet ultimately heartfelt story about a deep friendship during a devastating chapter of medical and queer history.

Encuentro: Growing Pains
Pre-Show Celebration | Post-Show Conversation
Hemophilia is a rare condition where a person’s blood has a reduced ability to clot. About 400,000 people worldwide are living with hemophilia, and 400 babies are born with it each year, according to the Hemophilia Federation of America. What does it mean to have a child with hemophilia in America today? In partnership with Victory Gardens’ Encuentro event, join us for a pre-show reception and then stick around for a riveting post-show conversation hosted by Jorge Valdivia.
