Cupcakes Will Sweeten Freud's 300th Last Session

PlayBlog   Cupcakes Will Sweeten Freud's 300th Last Session
In honor of the 300th performance of Off-Broadway's Freud's Last Session, character-themed cupcakes will be served to the audience immediately following the May 28 matinee at the Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater.

Audience members will be encouraged to make their cupcake selection based on which intellectual superpower, Sigmund Freud or C.S. Lewis, they believe made the more persuasive arguments during the course of the play by Mark St. Germain.

Freud's Last Session, according to press notes, "centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud, who invites the young, rising academic star C.S. Lewis 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 — just two weeks before Freud chooses to take his own. Not just a powerful debate, this is a profound and deeply touching play about two men who boldly addressed the greatest questions of all time."

The Off-Broadway play currently stars Martin Rayner (The Invention of Love and Sixteen Wounded) as Sigmund Freud and Mark H. Dold (Absurd Person Singular) as C.S. Lewis.
