This new play by Mark St. Germain centers on legendary psychiatrist Dr. Sigmund Freud, who invites the young, rising academic star 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 on the existence of God, love, sex, and the meaning of life—only two weeks before Freud chooses to take his own.
On May 2nd. original cast members Mark H. Dold and Martin Rayner will return to the roles of 'C.S. Lewis' and 'Sigmund Freud,' respectively.
