Hysteria hits the stage

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

An acknowledged modern classic, Terry Johnson’s hilarious farce Hysteria explores the fallout when two of the 20th century’s most brilliant and original minds collide.

The show, directed by Michael Cabot for London Classic Theatre, can be seen at Buxton Opera House from February 16-18. For tickets go to http://www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk
