The Picnic Basket.
Stirling, Nora; DiMichael, Salvatore
The one-act play dramatizes the problems and possibilities of the rehabilitation of the mentally ill, particularly the discharged patient from state mental hospitals. It creates characters with familiar prototypes, underlining a situation in which a discharged mental patient finds a job with the help of a rehabilitation counselor and encounters problems in getting along with his co-workers. To help make the lesson more learnable and usable, a comprehensive discussion guide is supplied with the play. (LE)
