Bruce Horak is Sigmund Freud.

Ryan Gladstone is Sigmund Freud.

The two actors playing one man engage in a comedic cage match inside the head of the famous shrink as they try to figure out just who Freud really is. Can they piece together the fragments of memory before his time runs out? Is his memory real or a construct? Can anyone really know the truth about themself? Is this show just a crazy metaphor for the Unified Theory of Mind?

Utterly adept at slapstick, wordplay and sound effects, these two actors from Vancouver are hilariously in sync with each other and their audience in this quick and clever version of the "talking cure."

— Wendy Burke

From the official Fringe Festival guide:

Sigmund Freud goes on a hilarious adventure through his own mind, and discovers that nothing is quite as he thought … literally!
