Dr. Freud’s Patient

A humorous and emotional story of a patient and a famous psychiatrist, marked by unique character development.


This grotesque takes place in Vienna in 1919. The thirty-year-old Adolf Hitler comes to Sigmund Freud’s consulting room with his girlfriend Christine, looking for help. Their sex life is not developing as Adolf would wish. Freud agrees to treat these unusual patients, but it is not long before unexpectedly unpleasant things start happening. The characters of the young dictator-to-be and the world’s most famous psychiatrist are depicted with a great deal of humor. The play was first performed at the Zagreb Youth Theatre in 1994. Dr. Freud’s Patient has been translated into German, English, Hungarian, Slovenian, Slovakian, Greek, Albanian, Czech, and Ukrainian. Performed in 12 various theaters.
