Juliana Smythe is a psychiatrist who specializes in treating walk-ins rather than referrals. One day a mysterious young man comes into her office to be treated for impotence and a tendency toward compulsive lying. The analyst becomes hooked on the case and she cures him to the point where he actually stops lying and falls in love with her. Or does he? Patient and analyst marry before the doctor learns to her horror the lurid truth about this strange man and his efforts to control her. The audience is plunged into a complex, perverse situation right, it almost seems, out of a Jacobean drama.
"A powerful and moving drama." - The Stage
