The Family Room

by Aron Eli Coleite

directed by Gwenyth Reitz

All fifteen-year-old David wants is to be a typical teenager, angry with everyone, especially his parents - two therapists who treat David like another patient. But in this world even therapists have therapists, and with Davidís rage mounting, and his parentsí marriage on the rocks, every member of the family finds themselves in treatment, and no one is getting any better. When David secretly tapes his fatherís sessions with a troubled girl from Davidís school and uses his knowledge to begin a budding romance Ė lives collide, therapists become patients, parents act like children and two teenagers must decide whether big problems can be solved by friendship alone. Heartbreaking, hilarious and perceptive, The Family Room, takes an incisive swipe at the dizzying revolving door of therapists in therapy, and the moments of true intimacy that stop us cold. ďA searching new play about the psychiatric profession and its discontents. The playís authentic outrage and raw irony canít be stifled.Ē - Los Angeles Times
