Description

The Patient Gloria wowed audiences at the Abbey Theatre during its sold-out world premiere at the Dublin Theatre Festival. Inspired by the 1965 films Three Approaches To Psychotherapy (the Gloria Films), this provocative and upfront meditation on therapy and female desire in a new political context where misogyny is the winning ticket, is a mash-up of re-enactment, real footage, lived experience and a punk gig. An 'experimental extravaganza' (Irish Independent) featuring 'the bawdiest performance of the year' (ExeuntMagazine.com), The Patient Gloria is 'very funny, very explicit, very sobering' (Sunday Independent). And therapeutic. It's very therapeutic.
