RANDOM ACTS

RANDOM ACTS is a psychological drama in two acts.

4m, 4f, 1 set

            RANDOM ACTS is a two act play that examines our preconceptions of time, normalcy and our ideology of psychology. June Cessario is a young, newly married, psychologist treating an unusual patient (Theodore Stavos) who claims he is unable to linearly integrate his soul with his body. While his body ages regularly day to day, like the rest of us, Teddy’s conscience (or soul if you will) is not tethered to the same timetable. He may live a day at the age of twelve and then another at 42, “jumping” between the moments of his own life until the last moment at the end of July 2011. However that date is looming closer and in order to save his life he must learn to correct course before it’s too late.

Told through vignettes of recorded appointments, deposition statements and overlapping memories:  time lines indeed begin to jumble.  Story arcs and discoveries emerge out of linearity as June sets about to help Teddy through his journey only to be caught up questioning her own choices and whether to believe her patient is crazy, deceitful or what he claims to be.
