RENO, NV. This is Paula Vogel's daringly comic and heart-stirring theatrical eulogy to the brother she lost to AIDS. Winner of the Obie award, the author went on to win a Pulitzer Prize for her Play, How I Learned To Drive, which was coincidentally directed by Neace at Brüka in 2012. The play begins as Anna is diagnosed with terminal "Acquired Toilet Disease". A first grade teacher from Baltimore, she embarks on a madcap trip through France, Germany, Holland and Austria with her beloved brother. She aims to taste all of life's sensual pleasures; he wants her to undergo a whacky alternative medical cure in Austria. Writing this award winning play, Vogel employs all her brilliant creative tools---comedy, drama, music, her love of movies, art and literature---to come to terms with a profound personal tragedy.
