About this show

Tranced, the new play by Robert Clyman, calls into question the concept of 'truth' and explores the powerful art of persuasion. In this chilling psychological thriller, Philip is a highly respected psychiatrist famous for using "trancing," a form of hypnotism, to help his patients uncover suppressed memories. When he trances Azmera, a foreign grad student, he learns that her secret could have profound consequences for thousands of people in an African village. Enlisting the aid of an ambitious reporter with connections to the Director of African Affairs, Philip is pulled into a suspenseful vortex that calls into question the very nature of truth.
