About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: You can’t sleep. The hallway closet towels: uneven. Your hand: strangely elongated. A car could trample that bottle curbside. Showering jagged glass shards everywhere – shouldn’t you call someone? One person's hysterical horror ride through the misfiring synapses of OCD.

Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You can relate to hidden struggles.

Don't see it if You're a tad sleepy. Story and actor were great, but his voice was so soothing, the effect felt oddly like a sad lullaby.

Entertaining, Funny, Intelligent, Quirky, Relevant

See it if You enjoy The Moth; seeing medical conditions examined and explained in greater detail using theatrical technique, humour and storytelling.

Don't see it if You prefer big musical numbers; or you would feel disturbed by an in-depth (albeit humorous) description of life as an OCD-sufferer.

August 15th, 2016

"This production assists in exposing a foreign world to the unknowing masses. It is a middle ground, though. There is not too deep of a dive into the science, perhaps so as not to turn off those who have no concept of anxiety…The audience at my performance laughed quite a lot, seeing the humor in the anecdotes…'Becoming OCD' is an enjoyable way to wiggle your toes in the ocean that is obsessive-compulsive disorder."
