Thursdays-Saturdays

Six people meet in the Hall of a famous psychiatrist. Everyone suffers from different TOCs (OCD) or obsessive-compulsive disorders and anxiety betrays them with ideas that they cannot escape and that causes them fear, nervousness, restlessness, repetitive behaviors. The problem is that the plane that brings the doctor, suffers an unexpected delay, which forces them to share an endless wait until the doctor shows up. Tendency to say obscenities (Coprolalia), systematic repetition of words or phrases (Palilalia), pathological necessity of counting objects (Arithmomania), extreme fear to sicken (Nosophobia), disturbance of the language which consists of repeating the patient Unwittingly a word or phrase you have just heard or pronounced himself (echolalia)... These are some of the TOCs (OCD) that the characters of this play suffer and which cure they have come looking for in this consultation. But the psychiatrist who has summoned them does not appear and will end up being themselves who draw their own conclusions. This comedy by the French author Laurent Baffie, has been performed in theatres around the world getting numerous awards and recognition, both from critics and the general public.

 

Una obra de Laurent Baffie - Versión: Julián Quintanilla

Dirección: Julio Palacios Azero

Seis personas se conocen en la sala de un afamado psiquiatra. Todos sufren diferentes TOCs o Trastornos Obsesivos Compulsivos y la ansiedad les traiciona con ideas de las que no pueden escapar y que les provocan miedo, nerviosismo, inquietud, comportamientos repetitivos. El problema es que el avión que trae al doctor sufre un inesperado retraso, lo que les obliga a compartir una interminable espera hasta que el doctor aparezca. Tendencia a decir obscenidades (Coprolalia), repetición sistemática de palabras o frases (Palilalia), necesidad patológica de contar objetos (Aritmomanía), miedo extremo a enfermar (Nosofobia), Perturbación del lenguaje que consiste en repetir el enfermo involuntariamente una palabra o frase que acaba de oír o pronunciar él mismo (Ecolalia)... Esas son algunos de los TOC que sufren los protagonistas de la obra y cuya cura han ido a buscar a la consulta. Pero el psiquiatra que les ha convocado no aparece y acabarán siendo ellos mismos quienes saquen sus propias conclusiones. Esta comedia del autor francés Laurent Baffie, ha sido interpretada en teatros de todo el mundo consiguiendo numerosos premios y el reconocimiento, tanto de la crítica especializada como del público en general.
