Wednesday, September 7: Patient A

Salt Lake City, UT – In 1992, Kimberly Bergalis became the first documented case of AIDS transmission from a health care worker to a patient. The case resulted in a public outcry, and in a new dialogue about the disease. The play "Patient A" documents Bergalis' struggle, and examines issues of testing, discrimination and personal responsibility. Plan B Theatre Company opens "Patient A" this week, and Doug Fabrizio talks to the Director Jerry Rapier, Actor Colleen Lewis, and to Utah Aids Foundation Program Director David Ferguson.

  • Plan B Theatre Company presents "Patient A" September 9 - 25 at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. For more information, visit Plan B on-line or call ArtTix at 355-ARTS (2787).
