DEATH WITH DIGNITY.... Comes In A Milkshake
A therapy session erupts into full blown mental anarchy, as a "Doctor's" office is suddenly commandeered by patients without appointments, insurance, homes, or an ability to survive in the real world-- Nobody, including the Therapist, has a name, let alone a game-plan to navigate life's journey, including one patient who wears a "horse head," to "stay in character" for his role in a community theater production of "Equus." The Therapist questions her own training/education, and
is reminded by the various patients, that they too believe, she is slightly unprepared for this line of work.
Politics, social issues, show biz are all topics that are attacked with blasphemy and rapid fire retorts, that somehow is reminiscent of Beckett on steroids... It becomes apparent very early, that there is a thin line that separates those that inhabit the Therapist's chair, with those that sit opposite, and ultimately a lesson is taught and learned, regarding the fragility of life, and the inner battle to decide when "enough is enough."
