Freud's Last Session
By Mark St. Germain
Suggested by The Question of God by Dr. Armand M. Nicholi, Jr.


   From performance March 7, 2015, sponsored by the NW Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study, Seattle Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, and the Jungian Psychotherapists Association. Directed by Elizabeth Clark-Stern, with Robert Bergman (right) as Sigmund Freud and Tim Nelson as C.S. Lewis. Sound operation by Donna Lee.
(Originally produced at Barrington Stage Company, Pittsfield, MA.)

The year is 1939.

Sigmund Freud invites the young rising Oxford Don, C.S. Lewis to his home in London. Amid air-raid sirens and radio broadcasts of England entering the Second World War, Freud and Lewis debate the existence of God, the nature of evil, love, sex and the meaning of life itself.

An unraveling of heart, mind, and soul in which both men employ humor, vulnerability, and a passion for finding the key to ultimate questions of humanity.
