What a treat for me and my friend! This is a dynamite show, from the staging to the performance, it is one fully packed hour that left us with just one word…WOW!

Freud’s Last Stand was packed with suspense, wit, angst, passion and every other emotion under the rainbow. Ron Reed was amazing (as he always is) and the other man who played CS Lewis was equally as stellar in his role. I would recommend the play to anyone who enjoys superior theater productions. Pacific Theater continues to be one of those hidden little niches of excellent theater in Vancouver and if you haven’t seen their productions, you are missing out!

My husband and I enjoyed Freud’s Last Session a lot. The actors did an amazing job and the props looked a good. Definitely, a lot of memorization for both fellows. The treatment we received, due to the late start, was excellent.
Thank you.

Poignant and inspiring, whether you are a believer or an atheist. Wonderful play, production and acting.

“Freud’s Last Session,” was stellar. Great acting, set, and music. Very moving. As do all the plays we see at Pacific Theatre, this one caused lots of discussion in our family, afterwards. Still thinking about it. And I love that Pacific Theatre makes me think.

When the acting is not perceivable as acting… when the ideas fly through the ether and whack you upside your consciousness — THAT is a great staging of a wonderful play.
‘Freud’s Last Session’ is a wonderful play. Thank you to the artists who gave it life. Pacific Theatre… please keep on keeping on — we love you!

I found the play very well thought out, with excellent acting – very hard to sustain a dialogue for that length of time. The audience was engaged from the first moment, It was good that the programme pointed out that the action took place before a lot of Lewis’ writing had been done. The interview was completely believable, especially with many questions remaining open at the end.

Very well done! Reed was excellent, and Evan Frayne held his own acting with such a talented actor. Having never seen a play at the Pacific Theatre before, I was really taken by the effect that the small stage and few actors had on me. The setup was really captivating, and allowed me to focus on the acting in front of me without the distractions of a larger stage. The story did not allow for relaxation, so it was good that it was not too long. A great performance for those who enjoy following along with their brains as well as their eyes and ears!

I went with my oldest grandson to this well-conceived and well-performed play. He was thoroughly absorbed throughout the performance, as was I. What stood forth was the meeting of two human beings, each standing in his understanding and conviction about the reality in which he lived, yet able to see each other in his essential humanity. The moment when they could laugh together showed it all.

Ron Reed was amazing, as usual. He nailed Freud adding a ton of idiosyncrasies and mannerisms. The actor playing C.S. Lewis was disappointed in comparison, in my opinion. He seemed rather annoying throughout most of it, portraying Lewis as a sour faced antagonist. I doubt he would have ‘acted’ that way. I just didn’t feel like he brought anything ‘extra’ to the role at all. He has a great voice but that was about all that impressed me. Good show altogether, thanks.

Saw this show in New York. Liked your condenced version & set was very good especially the wooden wings – heavy!! Would liked to have seen Lewis’ character much less aggressive & more patient, loving. Otherwise well done

It was a very interesting dialog especially placing Freud and Lewis in the same room, so to speak. It gave a good insight between how the world reasons and the Christian’s
insights and getting to speak them.
Additional pointers were for Lewis to “see” the effect of cancer and his horror of it and later to be of assistance to Freud when in excessive pain.
The final scene when Freud seems to acquiesce to Lewis’ final remark, as if ‘a point well taken’.
Very well acted, it seemed as if we were hidden in the room with them.
