The play The Baltimore Waltz by Pulitzer-Prize- winning American author Paula Vogel is often described as a comedy about death. However, while it is a very funny play, it is by no means flippant.
With no hope of a cure for the ATD (Acquired Toilet Disease), a brother and sister set off for Europe to track down a mad Viennese doctor who may have the magic cure. On the way, Anna discovers new appetites lustily devouring European cuisine and European men while Carl takes in the museums. Through France, Holland, Germany, Anna frolics while Karl finds himself pursued by an ever more ominous "Third Man," a mysterious figure who wants to stroke his bunny rabbit.
The Baltimore Waltz is full of music and humour, fantasy and wisdom. Most of all, it is a tribute to the way the human imagination faces the inevitability of death – with deep courage – and with wild laughter.
