Synopsis: At Freud’s Study in Hampstead, London, Dr. Sigmund Freud requests to meet with professor Lewis in regards to his intellect on why he has suddenly abandoned truth and embrace an insidious life of believing in God and the Roman Catholic Church. Throughout the meeting, the two men discuss many controversial topics regarding religion and personal beliefs which brings out a discoursal conversation. Although they have different viewpoints, both men respect one another’s opinion, improving their relationship later on during the play.
