Mean to Me: An OCD Odyssey
Mean to Me: An OCD Odyssey is a one-woman show that playfully skewers Emily's experience with OCD and how it's screwed with her ability to be sure of anything, from whether the door was locked to whether she was straight. (It was, and she wasn't.) It's part sketch, part standup, part music, and guaranteed to leave you feeling more gently toward yourself.
TW: OCD, Depression, Suicide, Alcoholism, and extensive ruminations on the methods of Marie Kondo
