Freud's Last Session
Imagine being a fly on the wall and taking in a heated conversation between Dr. Sigmund Freud, the devoutly atheist father of psychoanalysis, and philosophical Christian writer-professor C.S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia, on the same day that England enters into World War II. Well, if your synapses just started sparking off at the thought of such a stimulating debate, you're in luck -- Freud's Last Session brings precisely that imagined encounter to vivid life on the stage of Open Window Theatre. This spirited and critically acclaimed off-Broadway play by Mark St. Germain (The God Committee) finds these two intellectual giants confronting each other over their beliefs concerning love, sex, death and the existence of God. The result is a profound, touching and surprisingly humorous play about two renowned thinkers who spent their lives boldly exploring the depths of life's most significant questions.
