The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society Presents
Freud's Last Session
A City Stage New West Production
Does God exist? Does goodness require the presence of evil? What begins as a philosophical debate becomes a profound play in which Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis boldly address the greatest questions of all time.
Famed psychoanalyst Doctor Sigmund Freud is dying of cancer, having recently escaped to London from Nazicontrolled Austria. He summons the young novelist, essayist, and late convert to Christianity, C.S. Lewis to his London home to discover why the brilliant intellectual and former atheist would "abandon the truth for a lie". God, love, sex, morality, evil and the meaning of life are burning questions, especially on the day England enters the Second World War - and only two weeks before Freud will end his own life. Despite their clash of beliefs, the imminent threat of war leads the men to startling revelations about themselves, and to their common ground.
Inspired by the bestselling book "The Question of God" by Harvard's Doctor Armand M. Nicholi, Jr., Mark St. Germain's brilliant script sparkles with wit, surprising humour, and poignant insights into these great influential minds. << Back to full event listing
