Suppressed Desires

Suppressed Desires, by Pulitzer prize-winning American author, Susan Keating Glaspell, is a two act play about a woman, Henrietta, who is obsessed with dream interpretation and seems unable to stop over-analyzing the dreams of her husband, Stephen, and sister, Mabel.  Psychiatrist A. E. Russell,  tells Henrietta that his interpretation of Mabel’s dream means that her sister really desires an affair with her husband.

Stephen’s dream is interpreted that he wants to be single.  Eventually this changes Henrietta’s mind about the importance of psychoanalysis  and Mabel is encouraged by Stephen to keep her desire for him “suppressed.”   The play was a roaring success in its shows in at the Tagore Theatre, Chandigarh,  Lady Shri Ram College  & The Gymkhana Club, New Delhi.
