Some Historic/Some Hysteric
Tickets and Information
Opened Nov 10, 2006
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Since neuropsychology was founded just before the Victorian era, it has undergone a century and a half of growing pains, none of which was more theatrical than the "Hysteria Shows," or clinical demonstrations, of Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot of Paris during the 1870s and 1880s. He is known today as the founder of modern neurology, who, as one of a select group of physicians, made the Salpêtrière hospital in Paris a world medical center in the 19th century. His lecture-demonstrations on a floodlit stage were open to the public, attracting the famous, the fashionable, and the aristocratic. They are inspiration for Some Historic/Some Hysteric, a multimedia theater piece directed for the New Stage Theatre Company by Ildiko Lujza Nemeth. There is no performance on Tuesday, November 28.The final performance, on Sunday, December 10, is at 3:00 PM.
