“Love, Lies and the Doctor’s Dilemma” Opening June 11 at The Barn Theater

The doctor is in at The Barn Theatre June 11 – 16. Laugh until your sides split in the madcap farce LOVE, LIES AND THE DOCTOR’S DILEMMA. One little white lie leads to another and a movie star, mobster, and a gardener masquerading as a psychiatrist get caught up in the mess.

Joan (Guest Artist Mary Jane Guymon) lives with her lover, Sandy (Barn favorite Patrick Hunter). In order to hide her romance from her sister-in-law, Olivia St. Claire (Samantha Rickard), Joan tells Olivia that Sandy is her psychiatrist. Once the news breaks that there’s a shrink on the scene, people are banging down Sandy’s door to have a session. Vinny (Charlie King), a quintessential Italian mobster masquerading as a security guard, wants to discuss his work. Olivia needs love life advice. Rachael (Melissa Cotton Hunter), a neighbor whose life is a series of catastrophes, wants to know why she’s such a mess, and on and on it goes. Can Sandy keep up the charade? Can love prevail through all the chaos? Can anyone really survive without a therapist?
