Description

1999. Lucy is in labour. She’s just been handed a document to sign and her sense of self is beginning to deteriorate. 2024. Claire is an art student. Her latest panic attack means her art course could be over. Oh, and she can't stop contemplating her own mortality. Misdiagnosis, mistreatment and misinformation were rife back then. And still are now... Claire and Lucy have OCD. But they don’t know that yet. From award-winning Almost Adult writer-performer Charlotte Anne-Tilley (*****, EdFestMag) and Destiny (****, Guardian) producer, Tom Bevan.
