About the Show
“Exceptionally powerful, complex and moving.” -Chicago Tribune
“Roz & Ray is not only entertaining, but it can force us to confront an important, and poorly understood, part of our world.” -Forbes
Ray is a devoted single parent with one goal: keep his twin hemophiliac sons alive. In 1976, this means endless hospital visits, rigorous testing and frequent blood transfusions. Then Ray meets Roz—a brilliant doctor who offers a cutting-edge treatment for his boys—and everything clicks. Until they both discover the miracle treatment may lead to very dangerous results.
Set in San Diego, this gripping, time-bending story, sheds light on a little known chapter in medical history during the onset of the AIDS crisis. While navigating through the complexities of the medical establishment, “Roz and Ray” tells a profound story of love, trust and sacrifice that grapples with the messy process of healing the human heart.
