About the Show

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

"Powerful and evocative" -BroadwayWorld

"Roz & Ray is at its core a romance." -The Seattle Times

Roz & Ray tells a profound story of love, trust and sacrifice that grapples with the messy process of healing the human heart. Set in San Diego, this gripping, time-bending story sheds light on a little known chapter in medical history.

Ray is a devoted single parent desperately trying to keep his twin sons alive. Ray is ecstatic when he meets Roz – a brilliant doctor who offers a cutting-edge miracle treatment for his boys. Immediately, the two forge a deep and intimate bond, until they both discover this miracle treatment may come at a great cost.

"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
