'Freud's Last Session' gets extended two nights
URBANA — Because tickets have been in such demand, the Celebration Company at the Station Theatre will extend the run of "Freud's Last Session" by two nights: this Friday and Saturday.
The play opened July 25 at the Station and was sold out every night, from the beginning.
"It's quite amazing; we hope we can pack them for two more nights," said Gary Ambler, who plays Sigmund Freud in the two-character play.
"Freud's Last Session" will be presented at 8 p.m. both nights. Tickets are $15, with $1 discounts for students, and senior citizens older than 61. For reservations, call 384-4000.
The drama by Mark St. Germain imagines a meeting between Freud, then 83, and C.S. Lewis, played by Jesse Angelo, in the legendary psychoanalyst's London office on Sept. 3, 1939, the day England declared war on Germany and a couple of years after Freud had left Vienna to escape the Nazis.
The play, which runs 70 minutes, is directed by Tom Mitchell, associate head of the University of Illinois Department of Theatre.
