William Spetz - Do not help me

William Spetz in new self-written performance - health center comedy Do not help me

In February 2022, the premiere of William Spetz's new play Do not help me. It is a fast-paced and tragicomic drama with a strong recognition factor about a patient and a general practitioner who are forced to get to know each other at a health center on a Friday night. With him on stage is William Klungan actor Sven Björklund.

Don not help me is William Spetz's first self - written play since the critically acclaimed show Grandma I Know You're in Heaven, but do you have an hour? from 2016. The script is fictional but the story is inspired by personal experiences from himself and his closest friends.

- It has taken me almost three years to write Do not help me and it has been the most difficult thing I have ever done, at the same time as the play has given me an unexpected freedom. When I write a fictional story, it is suddenly possible to be more personal and go further than when I wrote an autobiographical monologue. It's weird but exciting, says William Spetz.

- William Spetz has written a very interesting show that I as an actor love to take on as it is free, playful and playable in so many different ways. I'm sure the audience will notice how much fun we have on stage, says Sven Björklund.
