Freud vs. his Ego

Completely Sold out run in Winnipeg!

4.5 Stars – Winnipeg Free Press

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.
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.”

4 Stars – CBC

This twisted biography of Sigmund Freud taught me more about the father of psycho-analysis than I’ve ever learned from a book or movie.

As Freud and his ego, Ryan Gladstone and Bruce Horak fire lightning-fast dialogue at each other, often in unison. There’s dancing, wrestling and some runaway penises (not real). It’s a romp!

HOT 103 Review

This is the best show I have seen so far at the Fringe! A hilarious show that follows Sigmund Freud as he battles with his newly detached ego to try and regain his memories and figure out his life before he dies, this two man show is not to be missed!
