WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

St. Bartholomew's Church presents a reading of Ryan's Light, a play about teenage AIDS activist Ryan White, by Bradford Harlan, on World AIDS Day, Wednesday, December 1. The play is about the life and times of Indiana teenager Ryan White who contracted AIDS in 1984 through contaminated blood products used to treat his hemophilia. He was barred from school, then successfully challenged his school board for the right to attend classes and became a reluctant celebrity. The one act play, which serves as a vehicle for AIDS awareness, enforces Ryan White's own perspective: that "AIDS is spread by ignorance." A portion of the proceeds for this production will be donated to a local pediatric AIDS organization.
