Featuring an all-star cast of celebrated comedic talent, this one-off 30 minute comedy pilot for the Playhouse Presents strand puts history's most famous women into the psychiatrist's chair and shines a spotlight on their psychoses and obsessions.

From Beatrix Potter who believes the animals really are talking to her; to Judy Garland, copying with her bi-polar mood swings and singing compulsion; to Eva Braun, who needs help for her seriously questionable taste in men.
