"Freud’s Last Session"

March 13, 2012

March 15-April 15

Phoenix Theatre

My last round of quality time spent with the work of playwright Mark St. Germain was listening to a recording of his play “Camping with Henry and Tom,” which concerned a meeting between Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Warren Harding. Since then, St. Germain has earned even more acclaim for another fictionalized meeting between historical figures.

This one, “Freud’s Last Session,” focuses on an imagined conversation between Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis. A hit elsewhere, it’s getting its local debut at the Phoenix Theatre featuring Purdue University’s Gordon McCall and Scot Greenwell, one of IBJ’s “clutch hitter” actors (see video here). If you have a penchant for smart dialogue, this could be the show for you. Details here.
