Set in the 1850s in the criminal wing of Bethlem asylum this is a play about the birth of psychotherapy. It is the story of the struggle between those advocating traditional and quite Medieval treatment of the mentally ill and those struggling towards an understanding of the centrality of childhood experience and the curative value in articulating it – the curative value of talk. It is a play about stories, but more than that, it is a play about the universal and, indeed, timeless need to be heard.
