1938. Hampstead, London. In Terry Johnson’s hilarious farce, 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, Hysteria explores the fallout when two of the twentieth century’s most brilliant and original minds collide.

Terry Johnson is one of the UK’s most celebrated contemporary playwrights. His notable successes include Mrs Henderson Presents, Dead Funny, Insignificance, TheGraduate and Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle & Dick. Hysteria won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 1994.

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, WaitingforGodot by Samuel Beckett and Alan Ayckbourn’s Absent Friends.
