Terry Johnson’s Hysteria is stopping off at Buxton Opera House from February 16-18 at Buxton Opera House as part of a national tour.

Set in 1938. Hampstead, London, the drama unfolds as Sigmund Freud flees Nazi-occupied Austria and settles in leafy Swiss Cottage. The ageing Freud intends to spend his last days in peaceful contemplation, but, when Salvador Dali pays a visit and discovers a naked woman in the closet, eye-popping mayhem ensues.

Winner of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 1994, Terry Johnson’s hilarious farce explores the fallout when two of the 20th century’s most brilliant and original minds collide.

The cast includes John Dorney (Salvador Dali), Ged McKenna (Sigmund Freud), Summer Strallen (Jessica) and Moray Treadwell (Dr Abraham Yahuda).

The production tours to 23 venues around the UK this spring.

London Classic Theatre is one of the UK’s leading touring theatre companies. Recent successes include national tours of The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter, Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett and Alan Ayckbourn’s Absent Friends.

Tickets are priced from £18 to £20 and discounts are available. To buy tickets call Buxton Opera House box office on 01298 72190.
