Audience Input

Suggestions for a problem for each member of the couple, a shared problem.

Description

One actor plays a marriage counselor and leaves the room while the audience offers the remaining two actors (the couple) each a problem they’re seeking treatment for (examples: obsessive cleaning, narcolepsy, fear of birds, cries during RomComs, etc.) and one shared problem between the two (examples: pet destroys furniture, child won’t stop cursing at school, annoying neighbors, etc.) When the marriage counselor returns they will try to give out advice even though they have no idea what the problems are. As the scene continues, the marriage counselor will try to guess. Once they have the solution, they offer their professional advice on how to fix the problem.
