The story; funny and farcical and steeped in history. The acting was very good. Very enjoyable.

Quotes & Highlights

Hysteria won the Laurence Olivier Award from the Society of London Theatre for its West End run.

Description

Science vs. Art: It’s a battle between brain and brush in The Nora Theatre Company’s production of Terry Johnson’s wild comedy, Hysteria, or Fragments of an Analysis of an Obsessional Neurosis_. Inspired by their real-life meeting, intriguing questions arise when Salvador Dali arrives at Sigmund Freud’s house for tea: Why is Freud haunted by one of his earliest cases? Will Dali ever get to paint Freud? What’s with the morphine drip? And who is that naked woman??? Directed by Associate Director Daniel Gidron and starring John Kuntz (_The Caretaker) as Dali.
