A lovely, heartwarming, funny story. I admire Jessica's strength and honesty and sharing her story with us. It's an important story and the world needs more people like Jessica to enlighten the world and told us their story. I call it brave.... full review

Funny & Tender... Jessica Carleton takes you on an in depth journey into what it means to grown up with OCD, in a way that touches & informs the audience. She has an incredible ability to not only draw you in, but make you see shades of yourself in this witty one woman show. ANXIETY WRITTEN is a Must See!!! ... full review

Calling this show "heartfelt" barely begins to touch on what is most real and most moving about this piece and the performance of it. Jessica is brave, funny, and direct as she explores the remarkable, challenging moments of a life with OCD. The story has a beautiful and thoughtfully constructed arc that held my focus from moment one to the satisfying conclusion. I learned a lot. I felt even more. I'm inspired. So well done.... full review

This was one of my five nominees for my sponsored award- the Conversation Creation award, sponsored by That's What She Didn't Say and The Outdoor Voices Festival. Jessica is an expert storyteller- likable and vibrant. The writing is impeccable with a lovely beginning, middle, and end, structured expertly to give us a little more theatrical oomph than many solo shows that read like ted talks or just long storytelling shows. The pacing is perfect, the amount of characterizations and they way they were portrayed is lovely. This was just a beautiful, gentle, and simply done show that gave a really beautiful insider look at OCD and anxiety.... full review

I have to say that it was quite refreshing to see such an incredible display of honesty. I can't remember the last time I felt so thouroughly accepted through the voice of another. Beautiful acted and incredibly written. It's an experience I am glad I was able to share with such a wonderful crowd. Completely relateable and honest. ... full review

ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 22, 2018
Gripping theatre and just overall great storytelling. Personal, fascinating, poignant, thought provoking. Not only does it cover mental illness and OCD/anxiety, it’s also about growing up and coming to terms with fear and the world as we know it. Also a wonderful arc, you experience the growth and realizations as the character does. Love, love, loved it. ... full review
