SUMMARY

‘an extraordinary, unflinching & honest first-person

account​’ - ​Mark Shenton (Critic for The Stage)

"People ask him why he won't move, but he won't reply, he can't reply, he is unable to because to do so would bring about t​he worst. . ."

Sam lives with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It makes everyday life repeatedly exhausting and unbearable. He wants to try and show you how it feels.

****************

can’t stop can’t stop is a solo theatrical performance by Sam Ross. Set in-the-round, the show follows the development and treatment of the performer’s own mental illness: a much-misunderstood, yet debilitating condition. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder affects 1.2% of the UK population and manifests itself in disturbing, intrusive thoughts, compelling the sufferer to perform repetitive, exhausting actions. After the struggle of starting University in 2016, Sam set out to find out more about his mental health condition, and figure out how to overcome it.

The result is an immersive show that balances personal experience with a presentation of the latest scientific understanding of the intricacies of this illness.

Admission: £7.50(£5.50) – £9.50(£7.50)
