American Stage Presents HYSTERIA: OR FRAGMENTS OF AN ANALYSIS OF AN OBSESSIONAL NEUROSIS, 9/12

American Stage Theatre Company presents HYSTERIA: OR FRAGMENTS OF AN ANALYSIS OF AN OBSESSIONAL NEUROSIS, by Terry Johnson and directed by Todd Olson and in co-production with Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater (W.H.A.T.).  Previews begin on September 12 and 13 with an opening night of Friday, September 14, 2012, running through October 21.

Winner of Olivier Award for “Best New Comedy”, Hysteria is based on a stunning, historical meeting between two of the world's greatest and most eccentric men - Sigmund Freud and Salvador Dalí. Set in London in 1938, Hysteria springs from Freud's fanciful mind as he juggles unexpected visits to his home by the famous surrealist painter Dalí and a mysterious young woman named Jessica who can't seem to keep her clothes on. Full of mistaken identities, dazzling surprises, and sheer Freudian slips, the tables are turned as Freud soon finds himself the subject of Jessica's own bizarre form of psychoanalysis while Dalí's surreal imagery creeps into his dreams and consciousness.

Mature subject matter and language. Brief nudity. Parental guidance suggested.

HYSTERIA was first produced at The Royal Court Theatre, London, in 1993.
