The Ruskin Group Theatre is extending the run of its production of Christopher Durang’s classic romp, Beyond Therapy, for the third time — to October 1 this time.
The production opened in mid-May.
Arguably Durang’s most memorable work, Beyond Therapy tells the story of Bruce and Prudence, whose chance for romance is complicated by their wacko therapists.
The Ruskin Group Theatre, founded in 2002, has not only produced several critically acclaimed shows, it has done extensive outreach, teaching and performing in correctional facilities, boys’ homes, nursing homes and more throughout Southern California. In addition, the theater is gaining a reputation for its monthly “Café Plays,” a collection of five one-acts that are written in the morning and performed the same evening. It also features lobby art exhibits.
It’s located at 3000 Airport Drive at Santa Monica Airport. Performances are at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays only. There will be no performances Sept. 2 and 3 for the Labor Day weekend.Tickets for Beyond Therapy are $20 general and $15 for students and senior citizens.
