Join us for an evening that includes the Southern premiere of Elizabeth Clark-Stern's play, "Out of the Shadows: A Story of Toni Wolff and Emma Jung," presented by the Jung Society and produced by The Archetypal Theater Company. The play opens in 1910, as Sigmund Freud and his heir-apparent, Carl Jung, are changing the way we think about the mind and human nature. Jung's 26-year-old wife, Emma, a mother of four, aspires to help her husband develop the new science of psychology, but when 22-year-old Toni Wolff enters the heart of this world as Jung's patient, her curious mind and devotion to Jung threaten Emma's aspirations. Toni and Emma's rivalry for Jung's heart and mind is passionate, yet, with the doors to the university barred to women of the Swiss aristocracy, they also find shared experience. As Toni and Emma explore both their antagonism and common ground, they struggle to know the essence of the enemy, the "Other," as well as the power and depth of their own natures. "Out of the Shadows" follows Toni and Emma's relationship over forty years while charting the parallel course of the field of psychology and some of its major players.
