Don’t miss this return engagement to ACU featuring Mark Smith, artistic director of Legacy Theatre in Atlanta, Ga., and Adam Hester, professor of theatre. Faith and science collide when C.S. Lewis (played by Smith) pays a visit to Sigmund Freud (a role reprised by Hester). Love, sex, death and the existence of God: they’re all up for discussion in Freud’s Last Session, which imagines a late-in-life meeting between the devoutly atheist father of psychoanalysis and the philosophical Christian author-professor. Amidst the ominous sounds of World War II and just weeks before Freud’s death, Freud and Lewis engage in a riveting, tension-filled discourse on life’s most important questions. “Delightful ... a brainy fencing match of Olympic caliber.” – Associated Press
