    Why is there a naked woman in Sigmund Freud’s closet?

    Salvador Dali arrives at Sigmund Freud’s house for tea, but what he really wants is to paint the patron saint of Surrealism. But if Freud is convinced that all Surrealists are fools, why would he agree to meet with a lunatic? Meanwhile, a young, attractive student has also arrived, seeking the doctor’s professional opinion, and she won't take no for an answer. Inspired by an actual meeting, Terry Johnson’s Hysteria, or Fragments of an Analysis of an Obessional Neurosis is a demonic, farcical romp of hilarious misunderstandings about passion, self-control, and two of the world’s greatest and most eccentric minds.
