Hysteria: Or Fragments of an Analysis of an Obsessional Neurosis
General Event Information
Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater
Winner of Olivier Award for “Best New Comedy”, Hysteria is based on a stunning, historical meeting between two of the world's greatest and most eccentric men - Sigmund Freud and Salvador Dalí. Set in London in 1938, Hysteria springs from Freud's fanciful mind as he juggles unexpected visits to his home by the famous surrealist painter Dalí and a mysterious young woman named Jessica who can't seem to keep her clothes on. Full of mistaken identities, dazzling surprises, and sheer Freudian slips, the tables are turned as Freud soon finds himself the subject of Jessica's own bizarre form of psychoanalysis while Dalí's surreal imagery creeps into his dreams and consciousness.
