Freud's Last Session

Stage Manager (on book)

Director: Peter Darney

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.
