Freud’s Oracle

freud's oracle photo book coverFreud’s Oracle, written and performed by award-winning actor-playwright Catherine Ann Jones, is a one-person play about the American poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle 1886-1961) and her relationship with Sigmund Freud. H.D. suffered great personal losses and a nervous breakdown due to the Great War, becoming Freud’s patient in 1933 due to an increasing paranoia about the rise of Hitler and the fear and certainty that another war was coming. H.D. helped persuade Freud to leave Vienna and re-locate to London. The themes are the travesty of war and the triumph of the individual.

Old ghosts and family secrets explode over a twenty-four hour period, exploring the love-hate relationships of family.

Calamity Jane

Catherine Ann Jones | Calamity Jane

Story: Calamity Jane, a legend in her own time, lived a century too early to be understood as the emancipated strong-willed woman she was. Forced to give up her daughter for adoption when Bill Hickok leaves her for another woman, the story presents the confrontation between mother and daughter as well as the myth and reality of the Old West.

 “If you’ve ever been a parent

   If you’ve ever had a parent,

                                                  If you’ve ever loved and lost,

                                                  You’ll love Calamity Jane!”
