POZ, according to press notes, "concerns a young man in 2003 with tuberculosis [who] discovers that if he was HIV+ he would be covered by insurance for chemo. He meets an HIV+ man with the idea of being infected. The play examines an unconventional love between the two men and an odd family of characters, each dealing with their own demons: an aging actress who struggles with asthma, an eccentric woman who speaks with angels, a middle aged flamboyant queen with a dying father, and a young man who died of AIDS early in the health crisis."

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
