Directed by Tyler Marchant, the show stars Mark H. Dold as 'C. S. Lewis' and Martin Rayne as 'Sigmund Freud.'
Freud's Last Session centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud, who invites a young, little-known professor, C.S. Lewis, to his home in London. Lewis, expecting to be called on the carpet for satirizing Freud in a recent book, soon realizes Freud has a much more significant agenda. On the day England enters World War II, Freud and Lewis clash about the existence of God, love, sex and the meaning of life - only two weeks before Freud chooses to take his own.
The play was suggested by the bestselling book 'The Question of God' by Harvard's Dr. Armand M. Nicholi, Jr.
