FREUD’S LAST SESSIONOff-Broadway’s hit play now in its second smash year, has set a special holiday playing schedule for Thanksgiving week at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street). Mark St. Germain’s FREUD’S LAST SESSIONis the winner of the 2011 Off Broadway Alliance Award for Best Play and stars Mark H. Dold as C. S. Lewis and Martin Rayner as Sigmund Freud. There will be no performance on Thanksgiving Day, November 24th and there will be a special added holiday matinee on Friday, November 25th at 2pm.

FREUD'S LAST SESSION opened on July 22, 2010 to rave reviews and immediately became a sellout sensation. Additional productions of the phenomenally successful play are already set through 2012 in major markets across the nation and around the world including London, Madrid, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, Los Angeles, Stockholm, Mexico City, Chicago, Seattle, Atlanta, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Palm Beach.

Under the direction of Tyler Marchant, FREUD'S LAST SESSION 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 – only 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. Mark St. Germain’s celebrated new play was suggested by the bestselling book The Question of God by Harvard’s Dr. Armand M. Nicholi, Jr.

FREUD'S LAST SESSION is produced Off-Broadway by Carolyn Rossi Copeland, Robert Stillman and Jack Thomas. The regular performance schedule is Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 2 & 8pm, and Sunday at 3 & 7pm. Tickets are $65 and are available at Telecharge.com 212-239-6200 or through www.FreudsLastSession.com. A limited number of $20 Student Rush tickets (cash only, with valid student ID) are available at the box office beginning three hours prior to each performance.
