The Juggernaut Theatre Company presents the English language US premier of Criminal, written by Javier Daulte, translated by Rodrigo Cameron and directed by Gwynn MacDonald.
Subtitled "A Short Tragedy about a Counter-Transferential Transference," the play dramatizes the Argentinean passion for psychotherapy chronicled last year in the NPR feature "Examining Argentina's Obsession with Therapy" (All Things Considered; Dec 21 2002).
With the highest ratio of analyst to citizen anywhere in the world, Argentina is the setting of this revenge play where psychoanalysts and their patients play a perverse game of hide-and-seek in the labyrinth of their relationships and hang ups. Tables are turned and shrinks are shrunk--hoisted by their own transference. This fast paced study on the politics of therapy reminds us that sometimes the only way to terminate psychoanalysis can be Criminal.
