Hysteria, an hilarious farce that explores the fallout when Sigmund Freud and Salvador Dali meet, visits the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds between Tuesday, February 21 and Saturday 25.

Sigmund Freud has fled Nazi-occupied Austria and settled in leafy Swiss Cottage in Hampstead, London.

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, intoxicating mayhem ensues. Terry Johnson is one of the UK’s most celebrated contemporary playwrights. His notable successes include Mrs Henderson Presents, Dead Funny, Insignificance, The Graduate and Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick. Hysteria won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 1993.
