Two psychiatrists—one new and inexperienced, the other his well-established mentor—battle over the diagnosis and treatment of Christopher, a young black man who claims to be the son of African dictator Idi Amin. This dark, edgy comedy by Joe Penhall—winner of the 2001 Olivier Award for Best New Play—will leave you wondering if anyone in this threesome is sane.

Matt Letscher as Bruce
Includes an interview with Dr. Carrie Bearden of UCLA about the diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia.
