What I liked

I loved the use of the theater lights, particularly a sequence when all the theaters lights are dimmed completely out and the character is climbing a wall with a single yellow spotlight which represents the anxiety she felt when her OCD manifested in the story. Her use of stage is so minimal yet very effective in telling her story.

What I didn't like

Wished she had more seats filled, this play deserves to be seen and would help people with OCD and kids who have an awful time adapting to new friends and being social, especially nowadays with all this social media, bullying and video gaming that numbs kids’ minds.
One thing I did wish is that Jessica slowed down a notch, it was hard to follow at times but she then slowed down at times when she needed to.

My overall impression

Very moving, funny when it needs to be but serious about its core matter. Highly recommend
