Reverse Psychology

An affair of the farce by Charles Ludlam


by Charles Ludlam
directed by Jonathan Bohun Brady

Take two psychiatrists, married to each other.  Add two patients, also married to each other.  Mix up who loves whom with their various neuroses.  Next, throw in a romantic vacation, a swimming pool and a truth serum.  Then sit back and watch just how crazy love can be.  America's greatest expert of the funny bone, Charles Ludlam (The Mystery of Irma Vep), delivers the perfect prescription for comic relief.

Triad Stage's Reverse Psychology Is A Hilarious Farce

Classical Voice of North CarolinaMarch 14, 2013

 In a quaint cabaret-style room upstairs from Triad Stage’s mainstage theater, the lights went up on two characters lip-locked in a fit of farcical passion, fairly indicative of how the rest of Reverse Psychology would unfold.
