Imagine being a fly on the wall for a heated conversation between Dr. Sigmund Freud, the devoutly atheist father of psychoanalysis, and philosophical Christian writer-professor C.S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia, on the very day that England enters into World War II. If your synapses started firing off at the mere thought of such a stimulating debate, you're in luck -- Freud's Last Session brings precisely that imagined encounter to vivid life on the stage of Houston's Grace Theatre. This spirited and critically acclaimed off-Broadway play by Mark St. Germain (The God Committee) finds these two intellectual giants confronting each other over their beliefs concerning love, sex, death and the existence of God. The result is a profound, touching and surprisingly humorous play about two renowned thinkers who spent their lives boldly exploring the depths of life's most significant questions.
