By Mark St. Germain

Freud’s Last Session centres on legendary psychoanalyst – Dr. Sigmund Freud – who invites the young, rising Oxford Don – C.S. Lewis – to his home in London. On the day England enters the Second World War, Freud and Lewis clash passionately about love, sex, the existence of God, and the meaning of life, just weeks before Freud was to take his own.

Freud’s Last Session is a deeply touching play filled with humour and exploring the minds, hearts and souls of two of the 20th Century’s most brilliant thinkers as they address life’s biggest questions. An imagined meeting which delivers real human insight and emotional impact.

“There is some truly marvellous acting in this detailed and precise production. The styling of this production is wonderful, with an attention to detail that is museum quality, including the famous analytic furniture piece, which is as perfectly recreated as the rest of the physical space.” – Judith Greenaway, Artshub.

“Very few theatrical productions (and films) these days seek to engage us intellectually… it is as important to remember to think and discuss robustly as well as feel, and surely this is a function of theatre. Director Hailey McQueen gives us a play which challenges us to fully engage our minds, not just our senses.”  – Kate Stratford, On The Town/ Theatre Now.

“Lawry is deft as Lewis, his respect of Freud’s work is apparent yet he delves into his own belief system vigorously. Papademetriou is at his best here: he plays Freud with meticulous detail from the Austrian accent to the physical tics that abound from the painful mouth cancer that he suffers from.” – Joy Minter, The Buzz from Sydney.
