SDPC will be presenting a staged reading of Freud’s Last Session by Mark St. Germain. This award winning play depicts a fictional meeting between Sigmund Freud and the writer and Oxford Don C.S. Lewis in which they clash and debate with both humor and passion the meaning of life, suffering, death, love, and the existence of God from their very different world views. The play takes place in Freud’s study in London on September 3, 1939, the day of the outbreak of World War Two and just weeks before Freud took his own life. This deeply touching play explores the minds, hearts, and souls of two brilliant men addressing the greatest questions of our time.
The cast for our production will be Haig Koshkarian joined by fellow actors Mark Barry and Elaine Litton. Haig Koshkarian, M.D, is Senior Faculty and a Past President of SDPC, Elaine Litton is a graduate of the SDPC Psychotherapy Program, and Mark Barry is a local award winning actor and director. All three have been performing at San Diego theatres for over ten years after not being on stage since their college days.
