 Dallas Buyers Club

Thursday 18th September - 19:30
John Clare Theatre

Ron is told in 1986 that he has Aids and has 30 days to live, but defies the odds, gives the finger to the complacent doctors and the AZT merchants of Big Pharma, and, like Erin Brockovich in a later era, knuckles down to some research, finding alternative drug therapies in foreign countries no mean feat in that pre-internet era. Soon, Ron has set up a buyers' club, niftily sidestepping US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules about drug-selling by getting HIV/Aids patients to pay for "membership" in which imported medicines are notionally free.
