Psychopathia Sexualis
John Patrick Shanley's (Moonstruck) comedy "Psychopathia Sexualis" won raves from critics and audiences alike, so we're proud to present it on The Strollers' stage.

Arthur, an obscure young painter struggling in the art world of Manhattan, announces to his self-satisfied friend, Howard, that he is engaged to be married. To whom? Asks Howard. The answer is to Lucille, a powerful, attractive, no-nonsense Texas socialite, a kind of wealthy Annie Oakley. But, Arthur confides to Howard, there are three problems: 1. Arthur is a fetishist, and Lucille doesn't know. He cannot make love without being in proximity to his father's argyle socks. 2. Arthur's psychiatrist, Dr. Block, unable to cure Arthur of his fetish, has stolen said socks. 3. Arthur's wedding night is fast approaching, and he needs his socks back!

"John Patrick Shanley's new play, PSYCHOPATHIA SEXUALIS is a smart new comedy about men and their befuddlements and a shrink who may just be the personification of evil.  The play's first half is perfectly poised between daffy comedy and believable human neurosis which Shanley combines so well that although you never know what wacky thing is coming next, you believe it when it comes." - LA Times.

"John Patrick Shanley's PSYCHOPATHIA SEXUALIS is a salty boulevard comedy with a bittersweet theme...Shanley's craft...is actually at high tide. Shanley has written what on the surface is a deft boulevard comedy, but one with thought-provoking depths." - NY Magazine.

"It's great fun to watch the sparks fly and great scene material for auditions and classes." - BackStage.

"Shanley is a wicked writer in the mouths of savvy socialites and other members of the Manhattan elite, his dense, witty prose sings. A tour de force of witty, barbed dialogue." - Variety.

The Strollers production of "Psychopathia Sexualis" is directed by Phyllis Kessler.
