London Classic Theatre presents

Hysteria

1938. Hampstead, London.

Sigmund Freud has fled Nazi-occupied Austria and settled in leafy Swiss Cottage. The ageing Freud intends to spend his last days in peaceful contemplation but, when Salvador Dali pays a visit and discovers a naked woman in the closet, eye-popping mayhem ensues.

An acknowledged modern classic, Terry Johnson's hilarious farce explores the fallout when two of the twentieth century's most brilliant and original minds collide. It won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 1994.

Terry Johnson is one of the UK's most celebrated contemporary playwrights. His notable successes include Mrs Henderson Presents, Dead Funny, Insignificance, The Graduate and Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick.

London Classic Theatre is one of the UK's leading touring theatre companies. Recent successes include national tours of The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter, Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett and Alan Ayckbourn's Absent Friends.
