Crazytown: My First Psychopath returns to Actors Theatre Workshop

Real-life therapist Jude Treder-Wolff's comic take - and true story - about getting a reality check by way of an encounter with a deceptive, dangerous individual. It’s amazing how authentic a completely fake person can be.

Selected for the 2013 Midtown International Theatre Festival. Official choice of the 2012 Chicago and San Francisco Fringe Festivals.

Produced by Lifestage, Inc.
