Many people have heard of Sigmund Freud and his world-famous work in the field of psychology, and even more have heard of author and philosopher C.S. Lewis. But very few know that Freud called Lewis to his home in London on the eve of the second world war to have a thrilling discussion on God, sex, politics and much more. This play explores the interactions between two of the greatest minds of the twentieth century and what happens when they get together – often with funny results. This is a great show for those lovers who like to think.

This play, by Philip Dawkins, follows the young protagonist through his loves and losses in 1920s Chicago – all three Fail sisters. As he falls in love with and is forced to lose each sister, one after the other, to their untimely deaths, the audience finds messages of hope, love and the strength of the human spirit. Described as “whimsical,” the show has its sad moments, but do not fear. It will not be all drama, there are plenty of touching and entertaining moments as well. This one’s good for lovers who want to know how love can conquer all.
