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

Transfixed. Such a vulnerable journey. I cried and laughed and cried. It was especially poignant as I was sitting with my daughter who has her own struggles. ... full review

Anxiety Written proves that one person and a wooden crate is more than enough to create an entertaining and emotionally moving experience, as well as a lasting impression. I was skeptical when Jessica approached us outside the theatre and asked if we were interested in seeing her show—she seemed almost distraught that she had failed to promote it properly—but we had no other plans for the evening and the ticket price was right, so we stuck around. I did not expect to be whipped through maze of emotions and involuntary reactions in an hour but Anxiety Written delivers in the most beautiful way possible. After experiencing the show, it hardly seems surprising that Jessica Carleton is an award-winning writer; with nothing more than a black wood... full review

Sometimes going in blind is best, as an impromptu introduction to this writer and performer only amplified the surprising degree of accomplishment that followed. Slightly out of breath, this Gal casually approached us in the parking lot to explain that she's on next but as a result of her hectic schedule, 'fumbled promotion for her show, but she's got talent, moxie, 5 Emmy's to her credit and if we gave her a look-see and didn't like we can get our $10. bucks re-funded (does anyone actually do that?) but you won't be disappointed.' As one who can appreciate audaciousness, the offer was taken and boy were we not disappointed, instead being treated to a one-woman wonder. Recounting various chapters in her life story, Jessica Carelton ski... full review
