    Anna Weiss

    John Strasberg, award-winning, internationally known director and teacher and last living member of the original Strasberg family (of Actor's Studio fame), returns to New York to direct a provocative and compelling play by Mike Cullen, "Anna Weiss." The production was developed in workshop at John Strasberg Studios, where he currently teaches in New York. Anna Wess, a hypnotherapist specializing in revealing "lost memories," has assisted a young woman, Lynn, in "remembering" a long history of childhood sexual abuse by her father. But are they real memories or dark suggestions? When Lynn confronts her father, Davis, he protests his innocence to Anna: "I lie awake all night, I relive every single moment since she was born and there's nothing there. There's nothing there." This explosive and gripping play is aobut how differently we define love. And how painful and abusive love can be for one person and not for the other. And, what memory is. It raises the specter of the phenomenon of False Memory Syndrome. And if some "remembered" memories are false, are they all untrue?
