Ron Vawter was a founding member of the 'Wooster Group', an ensemble of artists who collaborate on the development of theatre and media pieces. He performed in most of the group's works until his death from complications from AIDS in 1994 at the age of 45. In addition to his work with the 'Wooster Group' he frequently appeared in films including 'Philadelphia', 'The Silence of the Lambs' and 'Sex, Lies and Videotapes', generally playing small character roles. He is perhaps best known for the play 'Roy Cohn/Jack Smith': a series of two monologues that contrast the characters of two gay men who died of AIDS. This film is a recording of his last television interview in March 1994, just weeks before his death on 16 April. In it Ron Vawter reflects upon his life and work and discusses AIDS related issues.
