In Beyond Therapy, press notes state, "life can be crazy. Therapy can help? In its first New York revival, Christopher Durang's razor sharp comedy about the search for a meaningful relationship in an insane world may provide the best therapy of all - guaranteed laughter."
“As enormous admirers of Chris Durang, we’re thrilled to be presenting the first NY revival of this seminal work,” said director Evans in a previous statement. “Beyond Therapy is a particular favorite of mine. Chris blends his sharp, incisive wit with a sweet and almost optimistic heart. We’re thrilled Chris will be around and participating.”
The creative team comprises Tom Cariello (sets), Kim Krumm Sorenson (costumes), Mary Louise Geiger (lights) and Jill BC DuBoff (sound).

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
