Blame Traffic and Freud’s Last Session – Arts Monday
Blame Traffic is a play about chance, forgiveness, and traffic, from emerging playwright, Michael Andrew Collins. In Blame Traffic, the characters encounter a series of catastrophic coincidences, as they navigate the streets of Sydney and are confronted with the randomness of other people, biology, fate, and the transport system. This play portrays how people attempt to understand what really happened, the story they will tell themselves about what happened, and whether it matters if it is the “right” story and challenges us to make meaning of the randomness that exists in the world and how it affects our daily lives. Blame Traffic features a talented and diverse cast of emerging artists and is a twenty seven six production.
Writer and Director, Michael Andrew Collins is my guest today.

Freud’s Last Session brings psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud and Oxford don, C.S. Lewis together in a fierce debate over humanity’s biggest questions. As Britain enters WW11, Freud and Lewis clash on the subjects of love, sex, God and the meaning of life – just a few days before Freud was to take his own life. This award-winning play is filled with humour and hope, as it addresses the questions these two great thinkers wrestled with last century -the same ones we continue to ponder today. Written by Mark St Germain and directed by Hailey McQueen, Freud’s Last Session stars Nicholas Papademetriou as Freud and Yannick Lawry as Lewis. It is presented by Clock & Spiel Productions.
Actors, Yannick Lawry and Nicholas Papademetriou are my guests today.
