Bruce and Prudence are both seeing therapists, seeking help with their romantic lives. Her therapist wants her to be more assertive; his wants him to meet women through the personal ads (to the dismay of his male lover). After a disastrous first meeting, Bruce and Prudence discover that they actually like each other – despite therapists who are more screwed up than their patients.
Beyond Therapy premiered off Broadway in 1981 with a cast including Sigourney Weaver; a year later it moved successfully to Broadway with John Lithgow and Diane Wiest in the leading roles. The play is among the most-produced of Durang’s works. — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: Live Event
