Love can be tricky. Finding the right counselor isn’t always a picnic, either. In Christopher Durang’s comedy, “Beyond Therapy,” a man and woman seek stable romantic relationships with the help of their psychiatrists — each of whom suggests their patient place a personal ad in the newspaper.

Bruce and Prudence follow through and wind up meeting at a restaurant, says Stamford’s Curtain Call Inc., which is presenting the show. It’s their first date and they’re both nervous. After they sit down and he looks into her eyes, they share a special moment, but then he says something wildly inappropriate and “the worst date in human history is on its way.”

“Beyond Therapy” will be onstage at Curtain Call’s Dressing Room Theatre in Stamford, Thursday, March 5 through Sunday, March 15. Lou Ursone, Curtain Call’s executive director, says its story is “set at a time way before swiping left or right was a thing,” and that the show features “a wild collection of characters.”

Curtain Call says, “This 1981 play was well-received and transformed into a 1987 movie starring Julie Hagerty, Jeff Goldblum and Glenda Jackson. And while no direct connection is evidenced anywhere, it could be surmised that the fodder for this play came from one of TV’s most successful comedies - ‘The Bob Newhart Show’ - which had as its setting, a psychiatrist’s office and included a bunch of zany patients.”

John Atkin directs this show in Stamford. The play is not appropriate for younger audiences, as it includes adult/sexual language and situations.
