Collective NB, a performing arts organization in New Bedford, presents “Beyond Therapy” by Tony Award winning playwright Christopher Durang. June 22,23,29 and 30.
In “Beyond Therapy,” Bruce and Prudence meet through a personal ad in the newspaper, quite similar to, yet not as fast paced as today's dating apps. What are they looking for? What are we all looking for? Connection.
This comedy follows Bruce and Prudence into their search for connection with the guidance of their therapists. But are their therapists well suited?
Mrs. Wallace can't seem to remember common words in the English language and uses a Snoopy doll as a coping mechanism. Dr. Framingham can't seem to get any his patients to talk and may also have masculinity problems. Bruce and Prudence … are they fated or are they jinxed?
The Collective NB is in its third season. They are dedicated to providing affordable and accessible artistic experiences to their community. They look to collaborate with other artists in the community regardless of genre or experience. They are housed at Gallery X located at 169 William St. in Downtown New Bedford.
