Nothing The suicide-hotline volunteers in Adam Rosenberg's Prevention are having a bad night: Joachim is determined not to let his caller hang up, Sonny focuses on the logbook, and Dexter insists on recounting the story of his own near-death experience. Are they three distinct individuals or different facets of a single character? Under Scott T. Barsotti's fast-paced direction, what is essentially a monologue with flanking harmonies is transformed into a dazzling visual and aural kaleidoscope charting the progress of at least one mortal's final decision. The curtain-raiser in this evening of one-acts by Illegal Drama and the Curious Theatre Branch is Matt Rieger's Never Enough Nothing, seven facile sketches on the theme of spiritual penury amid material abundance. --Mary Shen Barnidge a Through 6/20: Wed 7 PM, Prop Thtr, 3502 N. Elston, 312-218-2548, $15 or "pay what you can."
