A comedy by Frank Strausser

Having hit the wall in her relationship, Lily's in crisis and her would-be fiancé Philip refuses to do couples therapy with her. But her hot young ex-boyfriend Dorian will. When Philip walks in on them at therapy together, a very awkward session follows in which therapist Nancy Winston must untangle the kinks. Psycho Therapy explores the interchanagibilty of lovers. Would it be any different if we went to therapy with someone else? Frank Strausser's insanely entertaining comedy opens the door to an unconventional option – couples therapy for three.

Psycho Therapy, which first had a five week "developmental" run in London's West End at the Arts Theatre, ran for over three months Off Broadway directed by the former producing artistic director of the Manhattan Theatre Club, Michael Bush. It was such a hit at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre, it was invited back for a new production five weeks after it closed! It was so popular with audiences, Goldstar awarded it, Roar of the Crowd, meaning it was their highest member-rated show in New York. So perhaps it wasn't surprising that after Psycho Therapy closed, The Cherry Lane asked the producers if they'd like to REOPEN it in six weeks for what would have been a third Off Broadway production.

Debuting in London's West End at the Arts Theatre, on the very stage Sir Peter Hall directed the English language premiere of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, Psycho Therapy had a stellar cast led by three time Olivier nominated actress Josefina Gabrielle (Oklahoma, Sweet Charity, and Merrily We Roll Along). It played to large, boisterous audiences and found its feet before its arrival Off Broadway.

A four hander, the play is easy to stage and a sure audience pleaser.
