or Where Theatre and Therapy Meet
by Christopher Douglas
While this could simply become a piece of therapeutic monologue, Baugh manages to entertain and provoke. There were numerous times that our audience smiled in recognition of those awkward parental moments. Baugh chooses not to distance himself from the piece because it is his life onstage, but he also chooses not to distance the audience from the story, because we all identify a piece of ourselves in what he has to say. We have had those moments where we scream at loved ones or try to counsel a family member through tough times.
