ANDY LEINBACH certified reviewer June 03, 2018
Poignant yet hilarious! Very honest, real, and personal storytelling. Jess is clearly a very experienced and gifted actor, and this is a legit theatrical production, with the lighting and staging enhancing the story she tells. The emphasis is definitely on the personal aspect, not the clinical. While this is an intense show, and is rather heartbreaking at moments, Jess balances that with a lot of humor, and the crowd on Saturday night was definitely laughing out loud. Highly recommended - so very worth an hour of your time!... full review

Carleton knows that by telling her own story, audience members will hear their own story in her words. This was certainly true for me as I followed her story of growing up with OCD which led her to be a social outcast in school. But it is the journey she shares with us that becomes deeply moving and hilarious at the same time as we follow her through the struggles and triumphs of treatment which lead her to real emotional change and the ability to consider others her "friends." She is a masterful storyteller, and you will walk away knowing that we all struggle with something which makes us human. After all, if you think you don't have OCD, just how many times do you check to be sure you turned on the car alarm or locked your front door w... full review
