The ShrinkRapt Theater Company grew out of the stellar productions sponsored by the NW Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study. The pioneers were Rikki Ricard, Sheri Nicholsen, Robert Bergman, Teri Hansen, Kris Wheeler, Roy Barsness, and many others.

Elizabeth Clark-Stern's first production with the Alliance Drama Group was Sophocles' OEDIPUS AT COLONUS. This was followed by Elizabeth's original play, OUT OF THE SHADOWS: A STORY OF TONI WOLFF AND EMMA JUNG. Rikki Ricard played Emma, and Elizabeth played Toni. This production was performed in Seattle with co-sponsorship of the Seattle Jung Society and the Jungian Psychotherapists Association. Other productions of OUT OF THE SHADOWS followed ─ in Capetown, South Africa, at the International Jungian Congress, and for the New Orleans Jung Society. Elizabeth reprised her role of Toni Wolff June 15, 2016, for The Reader’s Theater in Ukiah, California.

ShrinkRapt’s next production was Elizabeth's play NANA SOPHIA'S OASIS featuring Elizabeth, Robert Bergman, Tim Nelson, Lindsey Rosen, Aeron Hansen, Roy Barsness and others. This was followed by a play by Richard Askay and Jensen Farquar: OF PHILOSOPHERS AND MADMEN featuring Tim Nelson as Medard Boss, Robert Bergman as Sigmund Freud, and Michael Horn as Martin Heidegger. Our next production was the FREUD/JUNG LETTERS, adapted by Lee Roloff, with Lee Roloff as Jung, and Robert Bergman as Freud.

Recent productions include Elizabeth's original play, ON THE DOORSTEP OF THE CASTLE, a play with music and dance, choreographed by Lindsey Rosen, featuring Lindsey Rosen as Alma de Leon and the author as Teresa of Avila. This was performed at the International Jungian Congress in Copenhagen. Next came Elizabeth's TIMELESS NIGHT: VIKTOR FRANKL MEETS EDITH STEIN, with Robert Bergman as Frankl, and Elizabeth as Edith Stein. Following this we performed Mark St. Germaine's FREUD'S LAST SESSION with Tim Nelson as C.S. Lewis and Robert Bergman as Sigmund Freud.

In January, 2016, Elizabeth and Lindsey’s play THE MOVEMENT OF THE MOON: CAMILLE CLAUDEL, LIFE PHASES OF THE FEMININE IN ART, MADNESS, AND LOVE was produced at Good Shepherd Chapel Theater  in Seattle.

Our production for 2017 was SONG OF SALOME: LOU ANDREAS SALOME, THE ARCHETYPE OF THE UNCONSCIOUS, AND THE DANCE OF THE SEVEN VEILS. For this production, we moved to a new venue, the Isaac Studio Theatre in the Taproot Theater complex, 212 N. 85th Street, Seattle.

Through all of the productions beginning with OUT OF THE SHADOWS we have been blessed with sound operation by Donna Lee and lighting by John Stern. Without our technical crew, these productions would not have been possible.
