Le Visiteur : Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt :

All this violence was like ear-splitting noises. The conversation between Freud and God is facetious and exquisitely insolent. In between the bulk of the piece is taken up with the interplay between Freud and his visitor in dialogue which sparkls with intellectual energy.

The whole company believed in the play. When lit from behind the chinks between the books look like a myriad of candles. In Bulgarian, published by Lege Artis. His most famous book is God Exists: Naturally, he was the one whose advice I visiteurr.

Le Visiteur

The debate between the atheist Freud and the Visitor at the heart of the piece is more like a summary of a textbook discussion of the subject.
