DR REASON – SCI-FI PLAY SCRIPT ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH AND MIND CONTROL

 

Dr. Rachel Junger, a psychologist is trying to find out why her former patients have devoted their lives a revolutionary movement called ‘The Analog Underground’ when she’s called on to counsel a man with no past who believes he comes from a future where all of humanity shares a single consciousness. Is his vision a heaven or a hell? After the strange man makes an impossible escape, Dr. Junger has to find him to find out what happened that time long ago in the near future.

The man is Simon,  and it is he who tried to break into the Cybernetics Lab of the medical facility she works for. Little does Dr. Junger know that her interview with Simon (who thinks he is from the future) would be the catalyst to events that would change her life and the world, forever in this sci-fi play script about mental health and mind control.

Simon, a guinea pig, for some sinister testing within the Cybernetics Department, reveals his true nature as Dr Junger encourages him to do so. His current psyche is a result of a growth that’s being used to control his mind and rationale by an organisation known only as the Singularity. But then Simon disappears as it’s revealed that other very specific patients whom Dr Junger has encountered, have also been experimented on by the Singularity. Dr Junger gets closer to understanding why she must escape the Singularity’s clutches but initially, no less closer to understanding why the Analog Underground resistance movement has chosen her to be at the helm of a budding revolution. It’s a fight against time, for the future and for the people.

The heroes of the revolution never really know they are.
