London, 1939. Sigmund Freud. one of the greatest names of the 20th century and the lather of psychoanalysis. spends his dying days in Hampstead - in exile trom Hitler's Europe. An unexpected visitor in the night throws the certainties of a life's work into doubt and blurs the borders between dreams and reality. When things cannot get any stranger, they do.
Why has his Doctor lound women's undergarments on the lawn?
Is there a naked woman in the house? Was Salvador Dali chasing a swan round the garden? is he barking mad? or has everything just degenerated into farce?
Before hysteria sets in, lie back, relax. and tell me all about it....
