Tranced is the story of an esteemed and controversial hypnotherapist who uncovers a horrible, repressed memory from a patient--an African genocide. Torn between the doctor/patient trust ethic and the profound implications of the event, the doctor decides to bring the event to the attention of a reluctant U.S. government, only to find that truth is a matter of perception and political expedience. The play raises questions regarding who controls the truth in a delicate international political arena.

“Layered with provocative ethical questions, the play leaves us thinking even after it ends. Its topicality engenders reflection, as good theatre should.”
