Gente de Teatro presents TOC TOC
Gente de Teatro is celebrating its 27th season and its return to the stage with the Houston première of Julián Quintanilla’s Spanish version of the comedy TOC TOC by French playwright Laurent Baffie.
TOC TOC is a hilarious play dealing with a serious topic in a humorous vein: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). “TOC” is the Spanish Acronym for OCD. Six characters displaying certain signs of OCD are in the waiting-room of a renowned psychiatrist, a specialist in the treatment of the disorder. Because the doctor is late, however, these potential patients are about to embark on a new journey. Without either the expert or the expertise, and amid roaring bouts of laughter from the audience, they will attempt to create a therapeutic group of their own to help one another control their symptoms. The result is a play that is uproariously upbeat, yet the humor never offends.
All performances are in Spanish; English subtitles are not available for this production.
