Celebrate Laguna Playhouse’s 100 years of theatre with a staged reading of the first full production the Laguna Playhouse ever produced, Suppressed Desires! Only a few one-act plays have attained and maintained the level of acclaim of this popular and highly amusing travesty about misapplied psychology by Susan Glaspell. In this comedic satire of psychoanalysis, a woman addicted to therapy learns that a little self-delusion may not be a bad thing. Henrietta’s obsession with psychoanalysis leads to a completely off-the-wall interpretation of a dream and very nearly to divorce before the absurdity of the situation is realized.
Suppressed Desires is among the kind of work that helped define the little theatre movement of the early part of the century. Formed in order to promote new playwrights and experimental techniques without commercial pressure, the little theatre movement sprung up around the country in the 1910s and 1920s and laid the foundation for the great network of professional regional resident nonprofit theatres, like Laguna Playhouse.
Featuring French Stewart, Vanessa Claire Stewart and Jennifer Shelton.

A recording of the Live Stream will become available approximately 2 hours after the show and will be available until Sunday, October 25, 2020.
