When was the last time you heard people arguing about something important – politics, say, or religion – without raising their voices?
In the modern world, civil discourse has gone the way of the eight-track tape. But not so for the two men who debate the very existence of God in a new drama at Mad Cow Theatre.
That these two men are Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis and a confirmed atheist, and C.S. Lewis, the famed novelist and a devout Christian, raises the stakes in Freud’s Last Session, Mark St. Germain’s two-man drama, which opened last summer off-Broadway and is still playing there.
