Calgary’s Fire Exit Theatre proudly presents the first show of Season Sixteen, and our Guest Artist Series, FREUD’S LAST SESSION.
FREUD’S LAST SESSION
Written By Mark St. Germain and Directed by Daniel vanHeyst
Featuring: Michael Peng and Randy Ritz
Filled with humanity, humour, and razor-sharp dialogue, FREUD’S LAST SESSION imagines the meeting of two of the 20th century’s greatest academics. On the brink of war in Europe, author and former atheist C.S. Lewis visits the London home of Dr. Sigmund Freud. Lewis’ recent embrace of Christianity stands in stark contrast to Dr. Freud, whose beliefs are influenced by his life’s work in science. Amidst evacuations and air raid sirens these two legendary scholars debated religion, sex, love, the existence of God and the meaning of life itself.
“Assured and passionate performances…directed with vigour by Daniel van Heyst on his remarkable set.” — The Edmonton Sun
“Deftly acted, intelligently executed and wonderfully imagined…An uncommonly good thinker of a show.” — VUE Weekly
