The Chicago Tribune reviews the world premiere of THE ART OF DISAPPEARING and gives it 3 Stars in a review by Kerry Reid:

 

“Stephanie Alison Walker’s “The Art of Disappearing,” now in a sharp and often emotionally vital world premiere at 16th Street Theater, tackles the subject of dementia, the topic of many films and plays in recent years, from “Still Alice” to Bruce Graham’s “The Outgoing Tide” at Northlight Theatre a few years ago. As in Graham’s play, the central figures in Walker’s piece are a married couple and their grown child who has a conflicted relationship with the ailing parent. But both Walker’s play and director Ann Filmer’s staging take a fresh and mostly unsentimental approach to the question of how much forgetting and forgiving we need to do in times of crisis.
