This two-character drama delves into the layers of power, fear and intimacy that exist between a traumatized soldier (and former military interrogator) and the female psychologist colonel who is assigned to give him routine treatment. THE TREATMENT is a blunt exploration of torture, accountability and a soldier s "duty" to commit atrocities in the name of democracy.

Ensler leaves most of the directions to the actors, and I really enjoy that. While the play has a clear and solid direction, the interpretations can take an infinite amount of twists, which lends itself to new insight each read through.
