Freud’s Last Session by Mark St. Germain “centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud who invites the young, rising Oxford Don C.S. Lewis to his home in London. On the day England enters World War Two, Freud and Lewis clash about love, sex, the existence of God, and the meaning of life, just weeks before Freud took his own life. Freud’s Last Session is a deeply touching play filled with humor and exploring the minds, hearts and souls of two brilliant men addressing the greatest questions of all time.” Produced by Wayland Baptist University. The cast features Marti Runnels as Freud and Cory Norman as Lewis. Scenography by Mark Kirk. The production opened at WBU in April 2016 before moving to Lubbock, Texas, in May 2016, which included a panel discussion with Irish philosopher and storyteller Peter Rollins. It then performed at Gonzaga University‘s Magnuson Theatre on September 9-10, 2016.
