The piece plunges into the world of Karl-Etienne Gaufrin, who suffers from obsessive neuroses. The character played by Benjamin Baffie has decided to consult a psychiatrist in order to fight against his failings.
To everyone’s surprise, the character of Karl-Etienne Gaufrin, played by Benjamin Baffie, realizes that his psychiatrist, a certain Jean-Emmanuel Vertoughuowenein himself suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorders even more pronounced than his own.
Julien Gobin’s character uses very specific techniques. At this precise moment of the play, the public does not know at all what the therapy will be practiced and its outcome. Under no circumstances can the public foresee or imagine the course and plot of the play.
It’s a two-part play with a good game of slightly crazy actors, the end is surprising.
Each character sees his troubles in the behavior of the other. Each sees in the other his own neuroses, his psyche and his anxieties as in a mirror.
It makes you wonder who is the psychiatrist? The public wonders which of the two is the most disturbed?
Their acting is twirling, delirious, their duo works well, which allows them to captivate their audience.
It is a comedy by Julien Gobin with Benjamin Baffie and the staging is directed by Éric Delcourt. This comedy was played at the Edgar Theater in the 14th arrondissement of Paris, on January 30, 2023. Logically, a tour is planned.
