Chicago Slam Works presents this ponderous meditation on the roots of identity. Dominated by performance poetry but incorporating interpretive dance, comedic sketches, and overserious soliloquies, the dozen or so scenes are thankfully leavened by three ad breaks. Done infomercial style, selling “Gadget Dad,” “Analog Dad,” and “Sea-Faring Dad,” these are silly but done with joy, and a welcome relief. If, as the title implies, identity is a disease, this play is not the cure. Dru Smith directed. —Dmitry Samarov
