Beyond Therapy is a play by Christopher Durang.
: Beyond Therapy (): Christopher Durang: Books
This farcical comedy focuses on Prudence and Bruce, two Manhattanites who are seeking stable romantic relationships with the help of their psychiatrists, each of whom suggests their patient place a personal ad in the newspaper. Bruce is a highly emotional bisexual who tends to cry easily, a trait Prudence sees as a weakness. Their first meeting proves to be disastrous and the two report back to their respective therapists—libidinous Stuart, who once seduced Prudence, and eccentric Charlotte, who stumbles over the simplest of words, who references the play Equus as a good source of advice, and who interacts with her patients with the help of a stuffed Snoopy doll.
Clearly the two therapists are more troubled than their patients. Charlotte suggests a revised ad, which beyind again attracts Prudence, but this time Prudence and Bruce manage to get past their initial loathing and discover they actually like each other.
Complications ensue when Bruce’s jealous live-in lover Bob decides to assert himself and do everything possible to maintain his status quo.
