An explosive, gripping and disturbing play about the phenomenon of False Memory Syndrome.

Anna Weiss is a hypnotherapist, specialising in revealing 'lost' memories. Under her care, twenty-year-old Lynn has begun to 'remember' a long history of sexual abuse by her father. When Lynn confronts her father, David, he protests his innocence vehemently – so are Lynn's memories real or are they dark auto-suggestions?

Mike Cullen's play Anna Weiss was first performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in 1997, winning the Edinburgh Festival Critics' Award. It was revived at the Whitehall Theatre in the West End in 1999.

Extra Content: read an interview with Mike Cullen in the Daily Telegraph, 15 November 1999.
