“I think we are all a little crazy,” he confesses Lorena de la Garza, actress who this weekend premieres in the play ´Toc Toc´, in which she plays precisely someone who is a little crazy.

Lorena de la Garza He tells that during this time that we live locked up, he maintained his sanity thanks to a peculiar mania:
“If I put a decoration, everything must be in groups of three, either diagonally or vertically. But above all, I have to straighten what is crooked. I can’t help that if I see a crooked painting, I put it straight ”.

He arrives at a psychologist’s office but they remain in the waiting room because the doctor does not arrive, a situation of confinement that reminds us of what was experienced during the quarantine.
“With the Covid issue, we all went on hiatus and had to reinvent ourselves to stay sane. In my case, I started to decorate the house, to buy plants, to be a gardener, a plumber, a bricklayer. Everything that I had not fixed at home for many years, I did during this pandemic year ”.
So Lorena de la Garza He learned to live shut up and at ease with himself thanks to his little Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
“I know it was crazy to put myself to fix the whole house but I think these are moments that allow you to stay active and with sanity.”
