About this show

Set in London in 1938, Terry Johnson's Hysteria springs from Freud's fanciful mind as he juggles unexpected visits to his home by the famous surrealist painter Dalí and a mysterious young woman named Jessica who can't seem to keep her clothes on. The tables are turned as Freud soon finds himself the subject of Jessica's own bizarre form of psychoanalysis while Dalí's surreal imagery creeps into his dreams and consciousness. Called "an utterly hilarious and brilliant show" by The Sunday Times of London, Hysteria is full of mistaken identities, dazzling surprises, and sheer Freudian slips.
