AWARD-winning play Hysteria is to be performed at the Barn Theatre, in WGC, from next week.
Directed by Martyn Jolly, Hysteria, will hit the stage of the Handside Lane establishment from Friday, June 12, until June 20.
The comedy, originally by Terry Johnson, centres on a meeting between psychiatrist Sigmund Freud and the famous surrealist painter Salvador Dali.
When one of Freud's earliest "cases" returns to haunt the psychoanalyst, a "brilliant farce of hilarious misunderstandings" ensue.
Set in London in 1938, the play touches upon many themes - Nazi Germany, The Surrealist Movement, The Jewish Faith, Freud's Theories of The Unconscious Mind, life and death, love and loss.
Director Martyn Jolly said: "People should come and see this play as it is a funny, thought-provoking, award-winning piece of modern British writing.
