It’s a clever concept. Take two brilliant minds whose ideas and beliefs were well-documented yet diametrically opposed, and put them in a room together for an imaginary verbal slugfest. May the best man win.
But no one really does in Mark St. Germain’s “Freud’s Last Session,” in which writer-scholar C.S. Lewis, an ardent Christian, drops by the London home of Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis and an equally fervent atheist. The show opened Friday night at the Omaha Community Playhouse’s intimate Howard Drew Theatre.
