New York City
The Sixth Session is an intense, emotional, humorous, and moving piece about self discovery and new (and old) horizons. It is about a couple that enters pre-marital therapy for “the fun of it” and instead shocking secrets, self discoveries, and soul searching test every character to the brink of who they think they really are.
Feisty and ambitious New Yorker Ami, and easy going, unmotivated, New Jersian Ben are about to start planning their wedding, and #62 on their “to do list” is to stop in for some pre-marital counseling simply for extra added armour for their engagement. They meet with the warm, delightful, charismatic, and intelligent Dr. Judith Polaski to help Ben and Ami through their “non issues,” which leads to the unraveling of all three characters over the course of their “treatment.”
