The true story of NYC based playwright Rich Orloff’s adventures in underground, psychedelic-assisted therapy with MDMA and psilocybin mushrooms, inspired by cutting-edge experiments to help people heal from deep psychological wounds. A tale of one person’s journey towards reconciliation with the soul, with a slight detour for an appendectomy–And a few wise-ass comments along the way.
