is set in turn-of-the-century Vienna -- the crossroads of civilization -- a major confluence of art, music, science and politics. But, festering beneath the façade of frivolity and joy, the city is rotting at its core, sickened by moral corruption, obsessed with death, and ravaged by a growing hatred of the Jews.
Against this background -- Gustav Mahler, the great composer and conductor, falls in love with the talented, tempestuous Alma Schindler; Joseph Stalin meets a dangerous young man over a game of chess; Ludwig Wittgenstein, destined to become a dominant force in world philosophy, runs into an old schoolmate with unpleasant consequences, and in the midst of this, Sigmund Freud faces what he has always denied -- the essential evil nature of man.
Final Analysis , a new play by Otho Eskin is nominated for 13 MITF awards, including Outstanding Production, Outstanding New Script, Outstanding Ensemble Performance, and Outstanding Lead Actors (2) and Actress!
