Hitler'sTherapist is the world premiere of a new Carey Harrison one-act play, which the Woodstock Players Theater Company are presenting in a staged, rehearsed reading, directed by the author. In the play we meet Anna-Maria, an elderly psycho-analyst who describes how Adolf Hitler consulted her during the 1930s, because she was the only non-Jewish analyst he can find, and he has a severe problem: the only woman he will ever love in his lifetime, his half-niece Geli Raubal, whom he is holding prisoner against her will in his apartment, wants to kill herself. As Anna-Maria tells her troubled nephew, Geoffrey, about the outcome, we discover, along with Geoffrey, twists and turns beyond our wildest imaginings.

Hitler's Therapist, directed by Carey Harrison, features Mourka as Anna-Maria, and
Phillip X Levine as her nephew, Geoffrey. Costume and set designs by Claire Lambe.

The reading will take place on June 15 at 5:30 pm at the Kleinert/James Art Center of the Woodstock Guild in the center of the village of Woodstock.

*See our UP Next page for audience responses to the premiere of the play in June*

: it is the story of a woman who, one evening, kisses her children goodnight and goes out for a walk, and keeps on walking for 27 years. She travels on foot across America, accompanied only by her pet snail. Her idyllic journey comes to a halt when she witnesses a murder and is drawn into a relationship with the murderer - and a new mission.

Carey Harrison hosted a playwriting workshop, the results of which were laugh-out-loud funny. Participants were given the following instructions -:

You will bring a laptop to the Byrdcliffe Theater (map) and, in 40 minutes, write a brief drama - between 1,000 and 1,500 words long (approx ten minutes of stage time) on a premise to be announced at the workshop - for immediate performance by the actors of The Woodstock Players, who will be at your disposal

Here is your cast: Violet Snow, Richard Bennett, Carey Harrison, Joseph Bongiorno and Holly Graff:-



We also staged the
Byrdcliffe Festival Cabaret
