SYNOPSIS: Bruce and Prudence are deeply into therapy. Prudence’s macho therapist is urging her to be more assertive while Bruce’s wacky female therapist wants him to meet women by placing a personal ad. She does not fully comprehend that Bruce has a male lover who is not pleased by Bruce’s desire to date a woman: Prudence. Bruce doesn’t know how to handle poor nervous Prudence and Prudence doesn’t know what to make of her unpredictable new boyfriend.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS: 
Bruce: Male, 30-44 – Places a Personal Ad at the advice of his psychiatrist. He is fairly pleasant looking; optimistic and innocent if not always logical. Even though he has a live-in male lover, he is open to life’s contradictions.

Prudence: Female, 29-35 – Answers Bruce’s Personal Ad in hopes of making a connection. She is intelligent but also uncertain and vulnerable at times. Plucky and flustered.

Dr. Stuart Framingham: Male, 30’s-40’s – Prudence’s psychiatrist. Macho womanizing exterior with a galloping, raging insecurity underneath.

Mrs. Charlotte Wallace: Female, 30’s-40’s – Bruce’s psychiatrist. Loony and off-the-wall at times, but well-meaning and sincere when it comes to her patient’s care.

Bob: Male, 30’s – Bruce’s male live-in lover. Not believing in Bruce’s bisexuality, he’s confused and slightly hostile that Bruce is pursuing a relationship with Prudence.

Andrew: Male, 20’s – Waiter at The Restaurant and former patient of Mrs. Wallace, with a dubious past and a penchant for motorcycles … and Bob.
