Freud’s Last Session centres on legendary psychoanalyst – Dr. Sigmund Freud – who invites the young, rising Oxford Don – C.S. Lewis – to his home in London. On the day England enters the Second World War, Freud and Lewis clash passionately about love, sex, the existence of God, and the meaning of life, just weeks before Freud was to take his own. Freud’s Last Session is a deeply touching play filled with humour and exploring the minds, hearts and souls of two of the 20th Century’s most brilliant thinkers as they address the greatest questions of all time. An imagined meeting which delivers real human insight and emotional impact.
