Description

I'm Just a Little Bit OCD'' is a play told through episodic scenes of sisters, Tilly and Grace, as they come to terms with Tilly’s new reality. Alongside their story, brutally truthful, yet comedic monologues are performed by Matilda, a podcaster and OCD advocate as she performs her first live show directly to the audience.

Tilly has started to get intrusive thoughts about causing harm to her loved ones. Disturbed by the thoughts, she hides them from everyone and finds her own ways to keep these thoughts at bay. She starts tapping, checking, checking again, researching, asking, reassuring, but when her sister Grace returns home from university, Tilly eventually has to tell her what’s been going on.

Filled with anxiety and frantically searching google for answers, Tilly comes across a podcast all about intrusive thoughts and OCD. It is only now, sitting in the audience watching the first live show of that very podcast, that she can begin to reflect on her own journey from discovery to diagnosis and now finally recovery.

"I'm Just a Little Bit OCD" is supported by OCD Action (The UK's Largest OCD Charity.) OCD Action say "We feel strongly that this production should be seen by as many audiences across the country as possible. "I’m Just a Little Bit OCD" cleverly and uniquely combines comedy with an accurate portrayal of the condition - which is something we very rarely see."

This production was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and The National Lottery Community Fund.

Content Warning: This show is about mental health and speaks about intrusive thoughts of a violent, distressing and sexually harmful nature. There are scenes that viewers may find upsetting. Due to the content of the show, viewers should be 15 or above.
