Farce

This hilarious farce by the author of The Mystery of Irma Vep is about a husband and wife, both psychiatrists, who are each having an affair with a patient of the other who are also husband and wife! One patient is struggling to overcome her inability to have sex in bed and her compulsion to buy lawn mowers at Bloomingdale's. Her doctor would rather ridicule mental illness and make social engagements than listen to her babble on. The other patient, an artist, is desperate for recognition; whereas his psychiatrist is unduly worried that latent bed wetters might ruin the couch.
