News   Barrington Stage Company Extends Run of Freud's Last Session The world premiere of Mark St. Germain's Freud's Last Session, which officially opened at the Barrington Stage Company's Stage 2 June 14 following previews that began June 10, has been extended by one week.

Mark H. Dold, recently seen in the West Coast premiere of Opus at the Old Globe, stars as C.S. Lewis opposite the Sigmund Freud of Martin Rayner.

Freud's Last Session, according to press notes, "centers on legendary psychiatrist Dr. Sigmund Freud (Martin Rayner), who invites a young, little known professor, C.S. Lewis (Mark H. Dold), to his home in London. Lewis, expecting to be called on the carpet for satirizing Freud in a recent book, soon realizes Freud has a much more significant agenda. On the day England enters World War II, Freud and Lewis clash on the existence of God, love, sex and the meaning of life - only two weeks before Freud chooses to take his own."

BSC Stage 2 is located at 36 Linden Street in Pittsfield, MA. For ticket information visit www.barringtonstageco.org or call (413) 236-8888.
