FREUD’S LAST SESSION centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud who invites the young, rising Oxford Don C.S. Lewis to his home in London. On the day England enters World War Two, Freud and Lewis clash about love, sex, the existence of God, and the meaning of life, just weeks before Freud took his own life. FREUD’S LAST SESSION is a deeply touching play filled with humor and exploring the minds, hearts and souls of two brilliant men addressing the greatest questions of all time.

The 5 & Dime is committed to casting considerations which reflect the diversity of the people of Jacksonville, while recognizing that a specific gender, ethnicity and age is often a crucial aspect of a particular role or of the piece as a whole. We will include gender, ethnicity and age in the breakdown, where needed, and encourage all actors to audition where none is stated.
CASTING: 2 MEN. Caucasian. One plays Sigmund Freud in advanced age, the other plays CS Lewis in his younger years.
Access to a script of the play will be provided after you submit your audition form. Please read the script in advance of the audition; part of our time together will include a discussion about some of its elements.
Have a persuasive / analytical monologue prepared. Audition materials will be provided if you do not have a monologue.

The 5 & Dime’s commitment to our community is reflected in our mission: The 5 & Dime tells stories that engage, inspire, entertain, and challenge audiences, nurturing a rich artistic culture in Jacksonville’s Urban Core. We’re dedicated to fulfilling that mission but, as you know, we can’t do it alone. The pursuit of excellence and the ability to introduce new audiences to the power of live theatre takes the support of members from the community like you, whose very lives we seek to enrich.
The 5 & Dime is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and ticket revenue covers only a small portion of our operating costs. In an effort to make The 5 & Dime as accessible as possible to everyone by keeping ticket prices affordable, we rely on charitable contributions for a major part of our operating income. Without it, we simply wouldn’t be here and we wouldn’t be able to bring you the kind of high-quality productions our community has come to enjoy.
