On a rainy London night in 1939, after receiving a heavy dose of morphine to ease the pain caused by jaw cancer, Sigmund Freud tries to find some peace. A mysterious woman comes to the garden of her house in Hampstead, and through the windows that overlook the study, she threatens to commit suicide if he does not let her in. Freud opens it and Jessica enters drenched. Throughout the play, the true reason why the intruder visits Freud will be discovered and why the next morning she is still in his “closet” when two visitors arrive: Abraham Yahuda, his doctor, and Salvador Dalí. Little by little we will discover that the characters are actually wandering inside Freud’s head as he gives in to the mind-blowing effects of the latest dose of morphine.
