Shrinks is the latest play by the Award winning Playwright Timothy Daly, (Kafka Dancers, Dons Last Innings with Geoffrey Rush and Derrida in Love with Jackie Weaver). He has just returned from 6 months in Paris as the recipient of the 2013 Keysing award. His works were performed in Paris, Poland and Prague last year, and his plays are currently being developed in Hollywood. Monette Lee and Purple Pear Productions are very proud to be producing this play in Queensland, with a World Premiere season in 3 venues over 2 weeks.
Shrinks is the story of married psychotherapists Vivienne and Thomas, whose life together has become an overanalysed rut. When Carl, a free spirited patient (with dance moves to die for), becomes their shared case, their attempt at ‘curing’ him turns their lives upside down. Shrinks is a warm, funny and witty script that challenges our preconceptions about freedom, love and self analysis - while pondering the meaning of happiness. Shrinks will be an evening of delightful entertainment, witty dialogue, laughter and the sanguine beats of the Bossa Nova – so join in the fun, with attached dance classes an extra treat to be enjoyed.
