James Hebert, U-T San Diego

FREUD’S LAST SESSION IGNITES LIVELY, WITTY DEBATE

IN OFF BROADWAY HIT PRESENTED AT NORTH COAST REP

BY MARK ST. GERMAIN

Performances Beginning Wednesday, Oct. 15

With Opening Night, Saturday, Oct. 18, at 8 pm

Running Through Sunday, Nov. 9

Directed by DAVID ELLENSTEIN

This production is made possible by the generosity of Professor Marianne McDonald, Ph.D.

Freud_02 (1) copy 

Near the end of his life, Sigmund Freud invites a final visitor, the writer C. S. Lewis, who will soon gain wide fame for his new book, “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.” Not only are their views highly divergent – Freud is a committed atheist; Lewis, once an atheist, is now a committed Anglican – the two are a study in contrasts. Freud is irascible and adamantly opinionated; Lewis is sunny, warm and unflappable. The two men engage in a far-ranging, lively, witty debate touching on love, religion, politics and the meaning of life. Playwright Mark St. Germain infuses this fictional meeting with gentle humor and sharp dialogue. Winner of the 2011 Best Play Award by the Off Broadway Alliance, this San Diego premiere is a must-see for the discerning theatre lover.

 

Director David Ellenstein directs Michael Santo* and Bruce Turk* in Freud’s Last Session. The design staff includes Marty Burnett (Scenic Design), Matt Novotny (Lighting Design), Alina Bokovikova (Costume Design), and Melanie Chen (Sound Design), Benjamin Cole (Props Design) comprise the crew. Cindy Rumley* stage manages.

*The actor or stage manager appears through the courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers in the United States.
