Roz & Ray Public Programs: Modern Medicine

December 3, 2016 | 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM

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.

Following the performance of Roz & Ray
Historically and presently, in many parts of the world, women's participation in the profession of medicine (as physicians or surgeons) has been significantly restricted. However, women's informal practice of medicine in roles such as caregivers or as allied health professionals has been historically widespread. Why has this been the case? What is the temperature of women & medicine today? Stick around for this epic post-show conversation hosted by the American Medical Women's Association as women in medicine break open a conversation long kept in the proverbial coat closet.
