From Here to Insanity
A psychiatrist’s ex-wife ends up playing hostess to several extraordinary patients with multiple personalities when a nearby mental hospital burns down. James gets blackouts – that’s when his alter female personality Rita make an appearance. The woman has two personalities the classic Madonna/whore syndrome and Benny – Benny just talks in sound effects.
Crazy is just a different point of view.
Multiple personalities were never funnier.
“All the ingredients for farce are there in Caroline Russell-King’s new play: an oddball situation that gets sillier as the performance progresses, some funny lines and characters begging to be hammed up.”
“Playwright Caroline Russell-King has discovered humor in the weirdest places and the strangest people. She does a skilled job of creating physical nonsense and writing one line zingers.”
