Like most of us working in the arts, I was shocked to hear of the election results this November. Before the election, I half jokingly told myself that if the unimaginable happened, if Donald Trump won the election, I would simply have to find a way to bring The Abnormal Psychology of God to the stage. Unfortunately, that flippant thought turned into a passionately driven charge on November 8th.
A Liberty University evangelical psychology student finds herself in an unexpected audience with the President of the United States. At first it seems we are witnessing a sinister seduction, but we soon find that the President is seeking counsel to get answers about his dangerously fragile mental state. Before the end of the first act, we begin to wonder who is seducing whom.
This award winning play is speckled with dark humor and built on the foundations of a bankrupt morality that seems at once too horrible to believe and yet strikingly…familiar.
