Former Dallas Theater Center acting stalwart Martin Rayner appears as the title character in Freud’s Last Session at the off-Broadway Marjorie S. Deane Theater. In the play by Mark St. Germain, Freud debates God and man with author C. S. Lewis. By the way, Rayner played the same character in Dallas in the play, The Couch, for Stage #1. In that play, he debated Carl Jung.
In the New York Times, Ken Jawoworsky writes:
Still, even without much suspense there is plenty to admire in this production. Mark St. Germain’s script is astute, and the humor is plentiful. Martin Rayner delivers a wise and cranky Freud, a man who, as he nears the end of his life (the story is set three weeks before Freud’s death, in 1939) remains intellectually alive.
