Directed by Jennifer Ortega

Performed by Karis Danish

Performed by Patrick K. Dooley

Performed by Sophie Sorenson

Danny is studying the writings of Carl Jung for answers.  He lays down for a nap.   He dreams he is in therapy.  He tries to talk through his problems.  It turns out that the Therapist is the one with the secrets.  Danny can take no more and pulls out a gun.  Danny is in the Therapist’s chair and the Therapist is lying down.  The therapy chair confers wisdom and an extensive vocabulary.   The Therapist shares his secrets.  They are Danny’s repressed memories.  Danny is alternately at peace with his new role and terribly uncomfortable.  Chloe, Danny’s wife, dances into the Therapy session.  She too has secrets. …A metaphor is wheeled onto the stage…. Sometimes one is leading, sometimes another – leadership takes many forms.  The play ends.  The actors filter downstage for a talk-back.  It might have been about something simple. Or love.

This reading will be performed in English.

Additional Information
CIMIENTOS presents texts with visionary craftsmanship At core of the program is also the diversity and inclusion with which Cimientos has been curated. 19 years ago, IATI Theater began a steadfast commitment to the playwright. Hundreds of playwrights have graced the program. This year will be the first time that all 10 play readings are performed in less than a week. Cimientos, Spanish for “foundations,” now calls upon the most important member of this developmental step: you, the audience. We will from June 12th to June 16th, display 10 plays that have been years in the making and that are now primed for a public reception. We welcome you to help us make these plays all that they can be.
