A young school teacher, Anna, takes a European trip with her brother, Carl, after discovering she has contracted a fatal illness called, ATD (Acquired Toilet Disease.) This whirlwind adventure through France and Germany begins positively but takes a dark turn when they discover they are being followed by a mysterious stranger they can't shake off. As Anna tries to waltz around the truth, she eventually faces the reality of her circumstances and accepts that fantasy is a fabrication of denial.

"A tender, caustic comedy..."--NY Times.

 

"A rare and magnificent work.  A celebration of life at the same time it is a heart-rending evocation of loss."--Baltimore Sun.

Paula Vogel is an American playwright whose most recent work for the stage is INDECENT; Ms. Vogel received the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for her play HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE.
