Why See Freud's Last Session?

A profound and deeply touching play about two men who boldly addressed the greatest questions of all time.

After escaping the Nazis in Vienna, legendary psychiatrist Dr. Sigmund Freud invites a young, little known professor, C.S. Lewis to his home in London. Lewis expects to be called on the carpet for satirizing Freud in a recent book, but the dying Freud has a much more significant agenda. On the day England entered World War Two, Freud and Lewis clash on the existence of God, love, sex and the meaning of life ? only two weeks before Freud chose to take his own. Inspired by Dr. Armand M. Nicolai Jr.?s book "The Question of God."
