Hysteria


BOOK THIS SHOW >>

1938. Hampstead, London. Sigmund Freud has fled Nazi-occupied Austria and settled in leafy Swiss Cottage. The ageing Freud intends to spend his last days in peaceful contemplation, but when Salvador Dali pays a visit, and discovers a naked woman in the closet, intoxicating mayhem ensues.

An acknowledged modern classic, Terry Johnson’s hilarious farce explores the fallout when two of the twentieth century’s most brilliant and original minds collide.

Terry Johnson is one of the UK’s most celebrated contemporary playwrights. His notable successes include Mrs Henderson Presents, Dead Funny, Insignificance and Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick.

Hysteria won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 1994.

The cast includes  John Dorney as Salvador Dali, Ged McKenna as Sigmund Freud, Moray Treadwell as Doctor Abraham Yahuda and Summer Strallen will play the role of Jessica.
