Scapegoats

Presented by Center for Applied Theatre and Active Culture at Balch Street Theatre, Akron OH

Scapegoats

A married couple Zooms in for a virtual session with their couple’s therapist. The session starts out as a standard therapy session, but gradually spirals into a fugue of the two partners’ dreams, deliriums, fantasies, and ecstasies. Their journey to uncover their personal “unsaid” —sometimes comic, sometimes brutal— brings them face to face with problems of togetherness and aloneness, as they struggle to identify and loosen knots that have formed between them. With laughter and self-irony, they encounter their need to compete for position in the eyes of their therapist, as well as the world, and their humorous and vicious competition to be recognised as the one who has made the greatest sacrifice, finally even carries them to identify with two of history’s greatest martyrs, Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene.
