Derek Morgan: Actors on a stage. It’s a play.

Spencer Reid: It’s a form of psychotherapy whereby actors serve as surrogates for actual people in the patient’s life.
Jason Gideon: Incorporates many elements of theater, including an audience.
Spencer Reid: There was a very famous pilot program at the San Louis Obispo county jail in the mid 90s.
