>> A Case Named Freud <<

The Goethe-Institut Boston, in association with the Austrian Cultural Forum New York and Israeli Stage, proudly presents the American Premiere of A Case Named Freud by award-winning playwright Savyon Liebrecht. 

A Case Named Freud
 portrays the story of Sigmund Freud and the young Nazi Dr. Sauerwald, who originally plans to extradite the Freud family but then, against his boss’s orders, facilitates their rescuing departure to London. The play recounts in rapid and breathtaking dialogues how Freud psychologically sees through his counterpart, pulls him onto his side and ultimately saves his family. 

This presentation follows the Savyon Liebrecht: In Residence at Israeli Stage program which included the World Premieres of Dear Sigmund and Carl and Freud’s Women at Babson, Brandeis, BU & Emerson College where she lectures and led writing seminars. 

There will be showings at the Goethe Institut and at Brandeis. The Brandeis showing offers FREE ADMISSION
