FREUD’S LAST SESSION, the runaway hit play by Mark St. Germain, will end its triumphant run on Sunday, July 22nd at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street). The date also marks the show’s two-year anniversary. Upon the New York closing of FREUD’S LAST SESSION on July 22nd, the production will have played a total of 775 performances and eight previews.

The Off-Broadway premiere engagement of FREUD’S LAST SESSION opened on July 22, 2010 to rave reviews and immediately became a sellout sensation. FREUD’S LAST SESSION stars Mark H. Dold as C. S. Lewis and Martin Rayner as Sigmund Freud, under the direction of Tyler Marchant. The show is also currently playing to sellout houses at Chicago’s Mercury Theatre as well as at the famed Multiteatro in Buenos Aires and Sweden’s Stockholm City Theatre. Additional productions are set to open this season in London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Sydney, Madrid, Copenhagen, and Sao Paulo.

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 has hosted an unusually large number of celebrity attendees throughout its New York run, including such luminaries as Woody Allen, Alec Baldwin, Barbara Walters, Kenneth Branagh, Richard Gere, John Cleese, Frank Oz, Marcia Gay Harden, Neil Simon, Peter Bogdanovich, T.R. Knight, Patricia Heaton, Jerry Stiller, Christiane Amanpour, Andy Rooney, Olympia Dukakis, Dick Cavett, Victoria Jackson, Scott Adsit, Dan Lauria, Cornel West, Roger Goodell, Peter Shaffer, John Kander, Celeste Holm, Dr. Ruth (8 times!), Frances Sternhagen, Tina Louise, Louis Zorich, and Warner Wolf.

Playwright Mark St. Germain has written the plays Camping with Henry and Tom (Outer Critics Circle and Lucille Lortel Awards); Dr. Ruth, All the Way; The Best of Enemies; Out of Gas on Lover’s Leap; and Forgiving Typhoid Mary. With Randy Courts, he has written the musicals The Gifts of the Magi, Johnny Pye and the Foolkiller and Jack’s Holiday. TV credits include Writer and Creative Consultant for The Cosby Show. Mark co-wrote the screenplay for the acclaimed film Duma, and he directed and co-produced the documentary My Dog: An Unconditional Love Story featuring Richard Gere, Glenn Close and Edward Albee, among many others.

Mark H. Dold appeared on Broadway in Absurd Person Singular, and his Off-Broadway credits include Shockheaded Peter, Comic Potential, Race, The Winter’s Tale, Othello, The Seagull, Romeo and Juliet, Spread Eagle, and Timon of Athens. Regionally, Mark has appeared at the Mark Taper Forum, Old Globe (San Diego Critics Circle Award), Chicago Shakespeare, Shakespeare DC, Long Wharf (Connecticut Critics Circle Award), Trinity Rep, and Yale Rep.
