Born in Glasgow in 1927, RD Laing was the most famous psychiatrist of his time.

Laing’s work redefined the relationship between patient and doctor. His book ‘The Divided Self’ enhanced his reputation and brought him celebrity status. Laing believed the family to be a potentially destructive force on the individual. He once said ‘We are effectively destroying ourselves with violence masquerading as love.’ ‘Divided’ focuses on a pivotal moment in Laing’s own, often troubled, family life.

Among other things Ian Pattison has written five plays for ‘A Play, Pie and a Pint’. He hopes you enjoy this one.
