1984 production[edit]

The AIDS Show was first produced by Theatre Rhinoceros in September 1984 as The AIDS Show: Artists Involved with Death and Survival in the basement studio. Directed by Leland Moss, it ran and toured in a slightly modified form for most of the next year, and was published in West Coast Plays.[1]

A completely new production, titled Unfinished Business: The New AIDS Show and co-directed by Moss and Doug Holsclaw, opened the Main Stage season in September, 1985 and continued on various stages for another year. It was the subject of the 1986 PBS documentary by Rob Epstein and Peter Adair, also titled The AIDS Show: Artists Involved with Death and Survival.[2]
