So Where Do We Begin?


  • Playwright

    Seanan McDonnell 

  • Synopsis

    Psychotherapist Dave has fallen out of love: with his job, with his wife, with everything. But then he is visited by a new patient – a woman claiming she can steal people’s memories – and he is seduced by her story. With the help of his colleague Julieann, Dave begins to unravel the mystery before him. Is his client unwell? Is she lying in a plot to sabotage him? Or, against all odds, is she telling the truth?
