Arizona Theatre Company Opens FREUD'S LAST SESSION at the Temple of Music and Art, 1/19

Arizona Theatre Company (ATC) provides Arizona audiences an electrifying evening of high-stakes intellectual sparring in Mark St. Germain's "Freud's Last Session." Having played to record-breaking off-Broadway crowds, St. Germain's brilliance continues with Arizona performances of "Freud's Last Session" at the Temple of Music and Art, running from January 19, 2013 - February 9, 2013. It continues its run in Phoenix at the Herberger Theater Center from February 14, 2013 - March 3, 2013.

Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis, two of the 20th Century's greatest intellects, come together in 1939 as England goes to war against the Nazis for an evening of thoughtful discourse about God, love, sex, myth, and the meaning of life and death. Freud, the renowned atheist and stricken with cancer, is intrigued by the rising star of Oxford, so much so that he invites the younger Lewis to his home for what is in several ways an eleventh-hour summit. Freud would be dead within weeks, and Lewis - later the author of "The Narnia Chronicles," would soon rise to popular acclaim for his wartime broadcasts on the Christian faith.

This long-running off-Broadway hit was written by Mark St. Germain and was suggested by "The Question of God" by Dr. Armand M. Nicholi, Jr. Arizona performances will be directed by Stephen Wrentmore, ATC Associate Artistic Director. "Freud's Last Session" is sponsored by Emerson and Peggy Knowles. The Opening Night performance is sponsored by Dr. Mary Jo Ghory. ATC's season sponsors are I. Michael and Beth Kasser.
