Upcoming play - 'Beyond Therapy'

Newish theatre company Some Yank's Theatre Company have an upcoming production of Beyond Therapy, a comedy from the 1980s set in New York. The play runs from 15th to 19th October in the Pearse Centre at 8 p.m. each evening; there's also a matinee on Saturday 19th at 2:30 p.m. Tickets cost €12 and can be reserved by mailing someyank@gmail.com.

I like the concept behind the theatre company:
"My name is Liam Hallahan, and I'm the founder and artistic director of Some Yank's Theatre Company. I've lived in Ireland for 10 years, having moved from the states when I was 12. I set up Some Yank's Theatre Company last year with the aim of bringing great American plays that aren't seen enough in Irish theatre to the stage. We hope to add a bit of extra colour to the Irish theatre scene with our productions. Scenes from a lot of great American plays pop up in lots of acting courses and classes, but the full plays aren't performed very often.  Beyond Therapy is our second full show, after The Shape of Things by Neil LaBute and a showcase of American scenes we held back in May, called 'Some Yank's Scene Slam'."
Ireland's theatre scene is already very vibrant but I think this could add something new.
