There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

A satirical feminist play debunking Sigmund Freud's theories about hysteria.

In the famous case, Dora is sent to Dr Freud by her father, who feels she is suffering from neurosis. Despite her claims that her father's friend has been sexually harassing her, Freud believed her to be exhibiting symptoms of hysteria caused by repressed sexual desire rather than by any abuse.

Kim Morrisey's play Dora: A Case of Hysteria was first performed by Wheatland Theatre, Canada, in 1987.
