Prudence and Bruce are two Manhattanites looking for love, stability, and sanity. On the advice of his therapist, Bruce places a personal ad in the newspaper; on the advice of her therapist, Prudence answers it. At first, it seems as though the two couldn’t be less suited to each other: Prudence is a perfectionist, cautious and closed off from the world, while Bruce, who lives with his jealous lover, Bob, is emotional and spontaneous. But fate (and their therapists) continue to bring the two together. Much to their surprise, Prudence and Bruce find they might actually like each other. Can they survive neuroses, jealousy, and their crazy therapists? Christopher Durang’s off-the-wall comedy, Beyond Therapy, is a hilarious exploration of finding love in the modern world and accepting the little bit of crazy in all of us.
