Back by popular demand, Shelton Theater presents the dysfunctional and outrageous comedy Beyond Therapy. The play exposes the continuing American neurotic crisis that defies psychotherapy and laughs at the premise of any logical hope for standard American values, such as the current moral grandstanding in politics today. The play reminds audiences that sanity is relative and that love is something to hold onto.
Bruce and Prudence are deeply into therapy. Prudence’s macho therapist is urging her to be more assertive while Bruce’s wacky female therapist wants him to meet women by placing a personal ad. She does not fully comprehend that Bruce has a male lover who is not pleased by Bruce’s desire to date a woman: Prudence. Bruce doesn’t know how to handle poor, nervous Prudence, and Prudence doesn’t know what to make of her unpredictable new boyfriend. They do learn to live beyond therapy in this delightful off-Broadway hit that moved successfully to Broadway.
