For many, C.S. Lewis is best known as author of the beloved children’s series The Chronicles of Narnia, while counterpart Sigmund Freud’s importance as the founding father of psychoanalysis may (or may not) have slipped your mind. Spokane’s Stage Left Theater is bringing both of these great thinkers back to life in a presentation of Freud’s Last Session, a play that posits a meeting and debate between the two men on the eve of the Luftwaffe bombings of London in 1940. The theologically based mental sparring match between the aged Freud and young Lewis is served up quick and humorous, rendering the audience engaged and conscious.
