The Eradication of Diphtheria Tetanus by Michael Tobias

A shrewd statistician and a troubled expert in art history meet in a maximum-security prison where they discuss their life’s secrets and their secret lives. The Eradication Of Diphtheria Tetanus is a two-act play deeper than Waiting For Godot, and more enlightening than My Dinner With Andre. This work of revolutionary genius illuminates politics, ethics, and psychology in an Orwellian world of unspeakable actions and unthinkable thoughts. At first we believe that this work is about two alienated strangers yet at the end we grasp the chilling truth that this story is about us.
