Freud's Last Session allows the audience to witness the legendary psychoanalyst, Dr. Sigmund Freud, engage in heated discourse with the then little-known professor, C.S. Lewis. On the day England enters World War II, Freud invites Lewis to his home in London. Lewis expects to be criticized for having ridiculed Freud in a recent book, instead the two passionately and poignantly differ on the existence of God, love, sex and the meaning of life. This play is based on the book: The Question of God by Dr. Armand Nicholi, Jr.

"Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis engage in a battle of wits that is exciting and thought-provoking. And it makes for riveting theater. Freud's Last Session is a theatrical and intellectual delight!" – Huffington Post

"A gem! Intellectually thrilling with both humor and insight in abundance!" – NY1

"Delightful! A brainy fencing match of Olympic caliber!" - John Simon, Bloomberg News
