We are thrilled to hear that a new play about OCD by Lucy Danser will debut at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018!
Danser uses first- hand experience of living with OCD to explore how intrusive thoughts can control a sufferer's every day and, ultimately, their entire life as well as that of those who love them most. She hopes that Lost in Thought will quash the stereotypes of OCD and help people to develop a better understanding of the condition.
Lost in Thought tells the story of the once bright and ambitious Felicity, a school drop-out, living at home with her single mother Marie and struggling to separate unwanted intrusive thoughts from ‘helpful’, normal ones. As Felicity and Marie attempt to move forward with their lives independently, they are continuously interrupted by Felicity’s condition. Both utterly dependent on her terrified mother and feeling suffocated by her attention it’s only a matter of time before everything comes to a head.
