With droll understatement and easy, sly humor, Jenny Bacon and Jerry Saslow shine in this freewheeling comic one-act as a sister and brother who suddenly drop everything to travel to Europe. They’re in search of a cure for the sister’s terminal illness, ATD (Acquired Toilet Disease), which she contracted while teaching elementary school. This Obie Award winner was recorded live before an appreciative audience at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre and employs a number of audio/radio-theater techniques such as quick scene changes, musical vignettes, and hilarious voice-over descriptions, asides, and observations. Paula Vogel wrote this jagged and seriously funny piece in reaction to her brother’s death of AIDS in 1988. It’s contemporary theater heard at its best and most vital. B.P.
