The challenge in doing plays about actual people from history is to balance the information with the inspiration.

C.S. Lewis and Sigmund Freud never met, but the author asks the question, "What if they did - on the day Britain declares war on Nazi Germany?"
CHARPO: Now the play. As you prepared what have you learned about CS Lewis and about Freud that would colour your direction for this play about their meeting.
