This hilarious farce by the author of ‘The Mystery of Irma Vep‘ is about a husband and wife, both psychiatrists, who are each having an affair with a patient of the other, who are also husband and wife! One patient is struggling to overcome her inability to have sex in bed and her compulsion to buy lawn mowers at Bloomingdale’s. Her doctor would rather ridicule mental illness and make social engagements than listen to her babble on. The other patient, an artist, is desperate for recognition; whereas his psychiatrist is unduly worried that latent bed wetters might ruin the couch.
“Well crafted and sharply written… An intricate, madcap farce… that plays by the rules of Georges Feydeau, Alan Ayckbourn, and Preston Sturges.” – The New York Times
“When it comes to comedy, farce and all around anarchy, I don’t know an artist more talented than Charles Ludlam.” – Christian Science Monitor
