The Cape Playhouse
Freud’s Last Session
June 23 to July 5
For over seventy years, the legendary Cape Playhouse has been bringing professional summer theatre to Cape Cod. Often referred to as the “Birthplace of the Stars”, the Cape Playhouse has attracted a long litany of famous actors since its inception in 1927. The list reads like a veritable ‘who’s who’ of stage and screen.
Just weeks before his death, legendary psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud invites young writer C.S. Lewis to his London study. On the eve of England’s entry into World War II, the two brilliant men have a battle of the minds over God, love, sex, music and the meaning of life. This deeply touching, intellectually thrilling play laced with humor and insight finds two of Europe’s greatest minds – and men – forming an unlikely bond of friendship. Last season’s Off-Broadway smash!
