Can’t Stop Can’t Stop
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A solo theatrical performance by Sam Ross, which aims to convey how it feels to live with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. A much-misunderstood yet debilitating condition, affecting 1.2% of the UK population and manifesting itself in disturbing intrusive thoughts, which compels its sufferers to perform repetitive and exhausting actions. The show follows the development and treatment of Sams mental illness, examining the latest scientific understanding about how the illness works, as well as the current state of mental health support in the UK. Ultimately, this is a show about how we cope in ever-unsettling times.
