‘We create illusions to cope up with reality.’
Scene 1: Blanche
Nurse: Good morning, Blanche. You ready?
Blanche is well dressed and humming the song Varsouviana.
Blanche: Just a minute, love. Tell my dear, Shep Huntleigh I’ll be there in a while.
The nurse escorts her to the psychologist’s clinic.
Psychologist: Good morning, Blanche. How are you?
Blanche: Mitch visited me yesterday. He gave me roses and chocolates… But no need to get jealous, love. I told him I’m happy with you and I will never get back to him.
Psychologist: How about Stanley?
Blanche suddenly becomes pale and started crying. Blanche was about to breakdown…
Psychologist: There, there, my dear Blanche. It’s okay. It’s the past, but you have to tell me what happened or else I could not help you.
Blanche: O…okay…   Stanley is my sister’s husband. We didn’t get along…
Psychologist: And why is that?
Blanche: I think he secretly liked me… That’s why he… That’s why he…
Psychologist: He what?
Blanche: He… Well, he and I spent the night together.
Psychologist: And how do you feel about that?
Blanche: I am filled with guilt because I know Stella loves Stanley… But honestly, it made me feel so young and pretty. Oh, I remember my deceased husband. He was like, Stan. He didn’t say anything about how much he loves me. His affection was so elusive but I know I was his great love.
Psychologist: Well then, Blanche. That’s the end of our session. Sorry, love I have to go to a meeting. I’ll see you in 2 days.
Blanche: Okay, love. Take care of yourself!
Nurse escorts Blanche back to her room. The psychologist goes to the cafeteria and talks to the head psychologist of the hospital.
Head psychologist: How’s the pretty blonde girl? She still thinks you’re the love of her life?
Psychologist: Yes. She’s still caught in her world of illusion. She is in this world where she’s the one everyone desires.
Head psychologist: That must stop. You must end it. How will she be able to cope up with her...
