ROCK HILL, S.C. - Jealousy, fad therapies and emotional insecurity make for a mad romp in “Beyond Therapy,” the second fall production of the Winthrop University Department of Theatre and Dance.

This outrageous farce tracks the lives of two troubled young adults who desperately seek companionship. Prudence (Abby Olson of Camden, S.C.) and Bruce (Joseph Fry of Beaufort, S.C.) meet through a personal ad at the advice of their psychiatrists, who are even loonier than their patients. At first, the homophobic Prudence is disgusted by Bruce’s bisexuality, but as their relationship solidifies they come to enjoy one another’s company. Complications ensue when Bruce’s jealous lover, Bob, (Jed Cockerill of Fort Mill, S.C.) decides to do everything possible to intrude upon the relationship.

Directed by theatre major Melissa Frierson of Elgin, S.C., the production will run Oct. 26-29 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 30 at 2 p.m. in Johnson Studio Theatre.

This production contains adult content and language.
