'Freud's Last Session' review: Play is a satisfying conversation
But Mark St. Germain's play, "Freud's Last Session," is a rewarding exception. Currently being produced by the Guthrie Theater at its little upstairs space, the Dowling Studio, it's an imagined 75-minute conversation between psychologist Sigmund Freud and author C.S. Lewis at the London home where Freud spent the last year of his life. The chief topic is the existence of God, but the dialogue takes fascinating detours into music, sex, suicide and fundamental beliefs about good and evil. Evil weighs on both of these great minds, for it's 1939 and the Nazis are rampaging across Europe.
