Freud's Last Session
By Mark St. Germain
Directed by Gary Varner
Faith and Science collide when C.S. Lewis pays Sigmund Freud a visit. Love, sex, death and the existence of God. It’s all up for discussion in Freud’s Last Session, featuring ACU Theatre professor Adam Hester, as Freud, and audience favorite Jacob Alexander, a senior ACU Theatre major, as C.S. Lewis. Winner of the 2011 Oﬀ Broadway Alliance Award for Best Play, Freud’s Last Session imagines a late-in-life meeting between Dr. Sigmund Freud, the devoutly atheist father of psychoanalysis, and the philosophical Christian author-professor C.S. Lewis. 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.
