Synopsis

If dreams are the mind's attempt to sort out reality, then a journey into the mind can be either a very funny experience, or an emotional rollercoaster, or possibly a frightening combination of both. Laugh, cry and be challenged in this exciting evening of three amazingly entertaining and thought-provoking one acts. Caution, Mind Games is only for those who are brave enough to play. Ledge, Ledger and the Legend; A young man's suicide attempt turns into a hysterically funny look at the absurdity of the world around us as rival professional suicide counselors vie for his business. Mind Games; A well-known Hollywood psychiatrist agrees to delve into the mind of a troubled young man and finds himself faced with a reality more terrifying than he could have ever imagined. The Door; An elderly grandmother locks herself away refusing to open a door in her mind which leads to the night her grandson was murdered—and why he was killed.
