In Treatment

After almost a decade away from the couch, we return to the therapist’s room for this smart and often emotionally agonising drama seeing therapy sessions play out in real time with fictional patients. Orange Is the New Black’s Uzo Aduba takes over from Gabriel Byrne, as the therapist Brooke Taylor, and in tonight’s opening double bill Taylor counsels social worker Eladio (Anthony Ramos) through his insomnia, while white collar criminal Colin (John Benjamin Hickey) arrives for the first of his court-mandated sessions.
