Shattered Globe hosts curated post-show discussions with artists and experts following the Sunday matinees of our shows.
Join us for a live, onstage marriage counseling session with special guest Art Nielsen, M.D.! The Realistic Joneses couple Bob and Jennifer Jones (played by H.B. Ward and Linda Reiter) will work through the marital problems they face throughout the play. Don’t miss a unique opportunity to see these characters in a whole new way, guided by a real-life relationship expert!
Art Nielsen is a full-time, practicing psychiatrist, psychoanalyst and couple therapist.
He is a Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine, a faculty member at Northwestern’s Family Institute in Evanston, and a faculty member of the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis.
For many years and until recently, he was the coordinator of a popular, for credit course he developed for Northwestern undergraduates, “Marriage 101: Building Loving and Lasting Relationships.”
He has taught workshops and lectured widely and internationally on couple therapy, is the author of forty-some published professional papers in the fields of psychiatry, psychoanalysis, and couple therapy, and has published a comprehensive textbook relevant to this event titled, A Roadmap for Couple Therapy: Integrating Systemic, Psychodynamic, and Behavioral Approaches.
The Realistic Joneses playwright Will Eno has been called a “Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation” by The New York Times. Special guest John Jenkins will lead a discussion that digs into this comparison. More details coming soon…
