“Exceptionally powerful, complex and moving.” -Chicago Tribune

“Brilliantly captures the confusion, and the moral ambiguity about life on the edge of biomedicine.” -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.

"The author is a native San Diegan sharing an extraordinary journey based on true events. I am honored to stage her deeply moving play that lets us walk hand in hand with two brave souls on a quest to save the lives of those they love."
–Delicia Turner Sonnenberg, Director
