Friday, September 16: Patient A


By Doug Fabrizio

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 is currently performing "Patient A", and Doug Fabrizio talks to the Director Jerry Rapier, Actor Colleen Lewis, and to Utah Aids Foundation Director Stan Penfold. We are also joined by Professor Mark Carl Rom, author of "Fatal Extraction."

  • 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).
