"Christopher Hampton’s dramas are marvels of complicated construction, starting in the past and finding us fast... compelling in its Chicago premiere by Idle Muse Theatre Company... Caty Gordon, ranging wildly and powerfully... Thanks to Evan Jackson’s masterful direction, Doolin’s Jung and Mahler’s Freud run the playwright’s fascinating gamut very well indeed." 
-Lawrence Bommer Stage and Cinema

"The origin story of psychoanalysis is presented with wonder and reverence in this play about the evolution of thought... Director Evan Jackson finds the distinct personality of his characters through his talented cast. Gordon and Pease’s standout scenes and the startling conclusion to Act 1 builds anticipation of Act 2."
-Katy Walsh, The Fourth Walsh

Story
Tagline
An honestly-played moment can transport both artist and audience to another world.
Introduction
Idle Muse Theatre Company recognizes that, as a people, we spend our lifetimes exploring what it means to define our identities in a world that is constantly struggling to do the same. As we do so, that world becomes an expression of our internal struggles, writ large. We produce plays which explore and examine the circular relationship between the individual and the world; plays about individuals who are called upon to define themselves in relation to a larger political or social context.
