Just weeks before his death, legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud invites young writer C.S. Lewis to his home for a meeting. Freud wants to understand how a man once known for his fervent atheism could have become one of Christianity's strongest believers. The debate between these two colossal, charismatic thinkers becomes a dissection of love, sex, science and faith - humorous, insightful and intellectually riveting.
Michael Evan Haney, who directed last year's thrilling Mainstage production of Double Indemnity, directs The Rep's production of Freud's Last Session.
The creative staff also includes Peter and Margery Spack, set designers; Elizabeth Eisloeffel, costume designer; Jim Sale, lighting designer; Ben Marcum, sound designer; and Champe Leary, stage manager.
