STAGE TUBE: Opening Night Chats from Mark St. Germain's FREUD'S LAST SESSION in Chicago


FREUD'S LAST SESSION, the play by Mark St. Germain now in its second successful year in New York opened at the Mercury Theater (3745 N. Southport, Chicago) "for a session," making its Midwest premiere, running through June 3. FREUD'S LAST SESSION won the 2011 Off Broadway Alliance Award for Best Play.

FREUD'S LAST SESSION centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud, who invites the rising academic star C. S. Lewis to his home in London. Lewis, expecting to be called on the carpet for satirizing Freud in a recent book, soon realizes Freud has a much more significant agenda. On the day England enters World War II, Freud and Lewis clash on the existence of God, love, sex, and the meaning of life - only two weeks before Freud chooses to take his own. Not just a powerful debate, this is a profound and deeply touching play about two men who boldly addressed the greatest questions of all time. Mark St. Germain's celebrated new play was suggested by the bestselling book The Question of God by Dr. Armand M. Nicholi, Jr., professor of psychology at Harvard University.
