About the Production

What better way to begin the 50th season of the PTG than with a Gothic murder mystery or a witty turn-of-the-century comedy? Ravenscroft is both. One man, an earnest but unsuspecting detective, arrives at an isolated mansion and finds himself confronted by five devious women prepared to guard each others secrets. As he attempts to investigate the suspicious death of the handyman his questions are met with conflicting accounts of what happened and misleading innuendoes. How is he to sort it all out? At first, each of them denies having anything to do with the accidental death of the handyman but soon they either denounce each other as his murderer or claim responsibility themselves. Can he figure out what really happened, or will the audience have to do it for themselves?

This is an ensemble play with the kinds of challenges that tempt actors to stretch themselves.

About the Production

Freud’s Last Session is a fascinating, imagined meeting between Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis in Freud’s study in London, at the start of WW 2. The two famous men engage in a debate about the existence of God, the nature of good and evil, and the meaning of love, sex and life. The play has been called “a gem…great theatre…intellectually thrilling with both humor and insight in abundance.”(New York 1)
