FREUD’S LAST SESSION By
Mark St. Germain
Suggested by “The Question of God” by Dr. Armand M. Nicholi, Jr.
The first of September, 1939. Sigmund Freud, the world renowned psychoanalyst awaits the visit of soon to be legendary author C.S. Lewis on the day World War 2 is declared.
Lewis, a former atheist turned Christian is expecting to be taken to task for his recent satirisation of Freud in a book. However, the impending war and Freud’s failing health catalyses a far deeper conversation as they clash about the existence of God, love, sex, and the meaning of life- only two weeks before Freud, with his doctor’s help, takes his own.
King’s Head Theatre Associate Artist Peter Darney returns to direct the UK Premier of this Off-Broadway hit.
Real life Psychiatrist turned actor Dr Julian Bird (Eastenders, The Tudors) will take the title role.
Post-Show Q&A hosted by Terri Paddock: Tuesday 25 January, 7:00pm.
