Sabina (professional manuscript)
"Sex! Madness! Scandal! Will Carl Jung do the ethical thing by Sabina, or will he snatch her work and send her back to Russia where she is sure to be killed by the Nazis?" —Variety

"Absorbing! Primary Stages has given this well-written play a riveting revival." —

"Engrossing! Sabina provides a provacative window into the much-studied relationship between Freud and Jung." —Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

"The games phychiatrists play appear to be the natural stuff of drama…I found it suprisingly amusing, even while it challenged my mind and definitely held my interest. I recommend it." —Clive Barnes, New York Post
By Willie Holtzman.

Cast: 3m., 1w. This is the heroic story of one of the great female pioneers of psychoanalysis, who profoundly influenced both Freud and Jung until her tragic death at the hands of a Nazi death squad. "In the dawn of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud was always on the alert for new disciples, especially those who would expand acceptance of his controversial theories. One such early convert was the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, who had had some success with a young patient Sabina Spielrein, with whom Jung may or may not have had an affair but who certainly became intricately involved with both men. The twisted tale of this triangle involving two titans of psychoanalysis, once so close and later so implacably estranged, and an obscure Russian woman, who pursued a career of her own as an analyst, was virtually unknown until a cache of documents was discovered in Geneva in 1977…an intriguing new play." (New York Times) "…ambitious, intelligent new drama…" (The New Yorker) "…surprisingly amusing, even while it challenged my mind." (New York Post) Area staging.
