This quick witted and touching comedy focuses on Prudence (Carrie Whitton – Dinner Ladies) and Bruce (Sam Lupton – Wicked) who with the help of their psychiatrists, meet through an online ad, but their date doesn’t go as planned. Bruce is highly emotional and likes to cry a lot. Prudence doesn’t think men should cry “unless something falls on them.”
Their first meeting proves to be disastrous before the two report back to their respective therapists— Stuart (Matt Lapinskas – Eastenders / Dancing on Ice) who is a macho pig and eccentric Charlotte (Mandy Holliday – Les mis / Little Britain) who references the play ‘Equus’ as a good source of advice. Clearly the two therapists are more troubled than their patients. Bruce and Prudence mistakenly meet again.
Can they make things work a second time around?
Complications ensue when Prudence meets Bruce’s other lover and the whole thing comes to a chaotic end.
This modern day look at our relationships makes us all question whether or not we are all ‘Beyond Therapy’.
