Love, Lies &
The Doctor's Dilemma

A hilarious farce from the authors of
There's A Burglar in My Bed
by Michael and Susan Parker

Directed by Sam Koogler and produced by Michael Lafferty
Thursday, August 16 - Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Joan Scheller lives with the great love of her life, Sandy, with whom she raises cannabis in the potting shed. In an effort to hide their relationship from her overbearing sister-in-law, Olivia St. Claire, she introduces him as her psychiatrist. Before long, Vinny the Enforcer, a quintessential Italian mobster, masquerades as her security guard, while her son, Chris, on the run from Vinnie, is forced to wear a dress and become her daughter Christina. Further complications occur when her new neighbor, Rachael, creates chaos and confusion wherever she goes. Everyone wants a session and Sandy is forced to listen and give misguided advice. To everyone’s surprise it seems to work.
