‘Let Me Not Be Mad’ is an immersive, virtuosic and provocative investigation of madness, love and self-destruction that defies categorisation. A consulting room with two people in it. One of them is talking, the other is listening. Both of them need help. Throughout his life, A.K. Benjamin has found himself drawn to extreme behaviour – as a screenwriter, a contemplative monk, a counsellor for addicts, a support-worker for gang-members and ultimately, for ten years, as a clinical neuropsychologist.
