December 7, 2016 | 6:30 PM - 9:00 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.
Outloud: Still Here
Pre-Show Performance
In Karen Hartman’s Roz & Ray, Ray realizes how easy it is to call terminal the end, and how difficult it is to see it as a beginning. Throughout the decades, however, with greater emphasis on advocacy/awareness, prevention, and testing, the evolution of HIV and AIDS has changed this narrative dramatically. What does it mean to be queer and HIV+ in America today? Join us for this riveting pre show lobby performance as storytellers break stigmas and speak their truth.
