Unit Set/Multiple Settings

Witty, taut and rich in psychological insights, Mrs. Klein tells of a brilliant and unorthodox woman whose single mindedness threatened to destroy those closest to her. Melanie Klein 1882 1960 came to Britain from Berlin to extend psychoanalysis to young children. The action is set in 1934 when, at the peak of her career, Mrs. Klein is shattered by the news that her son has died in a climbing accident. Her daughter, also a psychoanalyst who publically challenges her mother's theories, thinks he committed suicide to defy their overbearing mother. The battle between these two women spills over into their professional lives, and the childhood events which lie at the heart of the conflict are exposed while a third remarkable woman, a young psychoanalyst on the run from Hitler, enters as a detached observer. Mrs. Klein transferred to the West End after its sell out run at London's Royal National Theatre and has since been internationally acclaimed.
