New York Times associate editor Frank Rich will moderate a panel discussion featuring four playwrights whose work has explored the impact of AIDS over the past two decades. The event will take place on Wednesday, June 30 from 6:30pm to 8pm at the New School's Tishman Auditorium, located at 66 West 12th Street (between Fifth and Sixth avenues).

The scheduled panelists are Larry Kramer, whose watershed play The Normal Heart is currently in revival at the Public Theater in a production by the Worth Street Theater Company; Tony Kushner, whose two-part drama Angels in America was recently adapted as an HBO film by director Mike Nichols; Terrence McNally, who has addressed the subject of AIDS in such plays as Lips Together, Teeth Apart and Love! Valour! Compassion!; and Paul Rudnick, whose Jeffrey dealt with the epidemic in a largely humorous way.
