By Paula Vogel

TIMES: Fri & Sat at 7:30 p.m., Sun at 2 p.m.

A giddy, farcical fantasy based on the love and adventures of a brother and sister, one of whom has a fatal disease. The diagnosis of a deadly virus sends the Anna and Carl spinning off to Europe to find romance and a cure before the final crashing scenes where reality sets in.

Pulitzer winning playwright Paula Vogel’s response to the 1988 death of her brother Carl, who died from complications due to AIDS before they were able to enjoy a long planned European vacation. Winner of the 1992 Obie Award for Best New American Play.
