The Talking Cure Sepia 325x488

The Talking Cure

by Christopher Hampton

Directed by Evan Jackson

Zurich, 1904:  Sigmund Freud’s intellectual successor, Carl Jung, tests his adopted mentor’s theoretical treatment on a brilliant young hysteric named Sabina.  As doctor and patient cross the forbidden boundary into lovers under the creeping shadow of two World Wars, all three are drawn into an intense and complex web that will eventually give birth to modern psychoanalysis – as well as its first great schism.

at Rivendell Theatre, 5779 N Ridge Ave, Chicago, IL 60660


Transporting - the Mission of Idle Muse Theatre Company is to deliver productions that address the relationship between the individual and the greater world.  We believe that great theatre removes both audience and artist from their reality and takes to them to another world.

Timely - we understand that the above can only be accomplished through human connection.  Our work must be meaningful and accessible to today's audience, here and now.

True - unflinching honesty in the playing.  This has been the Idle Muse signature since our earliest reviews, and our most treasured feedback.

These are the Three T's of Idle Muse Theatre Company.  We chose them because we think they are the core values of what we do, and what our audience connects with most deeply in our work. Over the next year, we ask that you let us know what you think - tell us when we make good on our commitment to you - and be sure to keep us honest if we don't.
