Beyond Therapy

Monday 16 - Wednesday 18 September 2019

This quick witted and touching comedy focuses on Prudence (Carrie Whitton – Dinner Ladies) and Bruce (Sam Lupton – Wicked) who with the help of their psychiatrists, meet through an online ad, but their date doesn’t go as planned. 

Bruce is highly emotional and likes to cry a lot. Prudence doesn’t think men should cry “unless something falls on them”.

Their first meeting proves to be disastrous before the two report back to their respective therapists— Stuart (Matt Lapinskas – Eastenders / Dancing on Ice) who is a macho pig and eccentric Charlotte (Mandy Holliday – Les mis / Little Britain) who references the play ‘Equus’ as a good source of advice. Clearly the two therapists are more troubled than their patients. Bruce and Prudence mistakenly meet again. 

Can they make things work a second time around? Complications ensue when Prudence meets Bruce’s other lover and the whole thing comes to a chaotic end.

This modern day look at our relationships makes us all question whether or not we are all ‘Beyond Therapy’.
