LOU is the story of Lou Salome, one of the first female psychoanalysts and an accomplished writer, poet, novelist and early scholar of the psychology of female sexuality. Lou had deeply intimate relationships with Freud, Nietzsche, and Rilke, along with other great thinkers of the day. Her brilliance matched (if not surpassed) that of these great men, though her work is hardly known. Through Salome's search for identity and fight to claim her place in a world dominated by men, the question arises: how far have we truly come?
Join Theatre 4the People as we descend into the brilliance of Salome through the eyes of an all female cast coming together to reclaim her story, portraying these men through the mind and memory of the great Lou Salome.
A limited number of pay-what-you-can tickets will be reserved each show in an attempt to keep theatre accessible to all.
