Freud's Last Session
By MARK ST. GERMAIN
Directed by IAN MERRILL PEAKES
On the Arcadia Stage
October 25 - December 23, 2012

On the day England enters World War II, Sigmund Freud invites a young C.S. Lewis to his London flat. Here, the father of modern psychology challenges a little known professor on the brink of literary fame. Freud’s Last Session imagines a collision of these two brilliant minds over love, God, and life.

Freud’s Last Session was supported by the Dolfinger-McMahon Foundation.

“A wholly engaging play [that] will leave you thinking… Freud’s Last Session is a show you don’t really want to end.” –Chicago Tribune

Critical Acclaim–

"This Arden production is excellent in every particular — the play choice itself, the design team’s work, the acting, and the direction. It’s completely absorbing, it transpires in a wonderful space, and it offers the opportunity to spend quality if imaginary time with two of the great minds of the last century.”

"An intellectual and emotional jousting match.”
–Broad Street Review   [Read More]

"An exhilarating verbal battle. The most intellectually stimulating 75 minutes I’ve spent in the theater in a long time.”
–Chestnut Hill Local   [Read More]

"Gripping dialogue. Tour de-force acting and direction. Theater at its finest. Not only entertains, but also encourages thought, conversation, and a desire to seek knowledge”
–Stage Magazine   [Read More]

"An intelligent work that respects its subjects and its audience, and makes complex religious and philosophical arguments approachable.”
