Kim Morrissey : Radio and Television and Film


Radio

  • Dora: A Case of Hysteria - Playhouse on National Radio - New Zealand, Wednesday 17 March 1999, 8.06 pm. From Highlights:
    It's suddenly fashionable to knock Freud. Could the father of psychoanalysis have got it wrong? Was he really Sigmund Fraud? Kim Morrissey's delicious black comedy takes a fresh look at one of his most famous cases - a study in repressed sexual desire. Freud wouldn't like it.
    Directed for the BBC by Cherry Cookson and starring Clive Merrison, Lesley Sharp and Edward de Souza. Playhouse on National Radio, 8.06 pm every Wednesday
  • Dora: A Case of Hysteria -- ABC Classic FM (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), Tuesday 12 March 1996, 8pm. From Radio Highlights:
    A play by Kim Morrissey, set at the turn of the century. Dora is a young woman diagnosed as suffering nervous hysteria. She undergoes treatment with the famous Dr Freud. No one considers the possibility that rather than being "hysterical", she is telling the truth about her experiences -- least of all Freud, who twists her innocent and straightforward statements into symbolic and sexual meanings that fit his theories. An amusing reassessment of one of Freud's most famous case studies.
