NY Times: Sharp, meaty production. Huffington Post: Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis engage in a battle of wits that is exciting and thought- provoking. And it makes for riveting theatre. Freud's Last Session is a theatrical and intellectual delight! NY1: A gem intellectually thrilling with both humour and insight in abundance. Time Out New York: 4 Stars! Variety: Thrilling!
For an evening of intelligent dialogue that stays with you, this is your play. You are transported back to a beautiful stage set in 1939 London and almost immediately engrossed in conversational volleys on philosophy of life and religion, with smart laughs along the way.
Freud's Last Session centres on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud, who invites the rising academic star C. S. Lewis to his home in London. Lewis, expecting to be called on the carpet for satirizing Freud in a recent book, soon realizes Freud has a much more significant agenda. On the day England enters World War II, Freud and Lewis clash on the existence of God, love, sex, and the meaning of life – only two weeks before Freud chooses to take his own. The play is about two men who boldly addressed the greatest questions of all time. Featuring Pius McGrath and David Collins Directed By Simon Thompson
