The Off-Broadway premiere engagement of FREUD'S LAST SESSION opened on July 22, 2010 and became a sellout sensation throughout its phenomenal two-year run. The show is also currently playing to sold-out houses in Buenos Aires, Philadelphia, Stockholm, Albuquerque, and Honolulu. Additional productions are set to open this season in London, Mexico City, Sydney, Madrid, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Copenhagen, Phoenix, Cleveland, Tucson, and Santa Fe. FREUD'S LAST SESSION was produced Off-Broadway by Carolyn Rossi Copeland, Robert Stillman and Jack Thomas.
FREUD'S LAST SESSION centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud, who invites the young, 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. Not just a powerful debate, this is a profound and deeply touching play about two men who boldly addressed the greatest questions of all time. Mark St. Germain's celebrated play was suggested by the bestselling book The Question of God by Harvard's Dr. Armand M. Nicholi, Jr.
