London Classic Theatre

By Terry Johnson, Directed by Michael Cabot

Terry Johnson is one of the UK’s most celebrated contemporary playwrights. His notable successes include Dead Funny, Insignificance, and Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick, all of which have been produced by the New Vic.

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.
Hysteria won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 1994.

London Classic Theatre’s recent visits to the New Vic include Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party and Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.
