Based on fascinating true events, The Talking Cure is a compelling tale of sexual and intellectual discovery.

Written by acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Christopher Hampton, the play premiered a decade ago at The National Theatre starring Ralph Fiennes and Jodhi May.

The Talking Cure offers a glimpse into the turbulent relationships between fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung, his mentor Sigmund Freud and Sabina Spielrein, the troubled but beautiful young woman who comes between them.

Multi-award-winning theatre company CCADS continues its tradition of using landmark non-theatrical venues, performing in the atmospheric setting of the Square Tower, Old Portsmouth.

The show features Sally Goddard, 2013 News Guide Award Best Actress winner, as Sabine with artistic director John-Paul McCrohon as Jung and 2011 News Guide Best Actor winner Kevin Redfern as Freud.

Performances until February 20 at 7.30pm each night. Tickets: £12. Call (023) 9282 8282.
