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

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

This is a show you should definitely see! Jessica is an incredible writer and performer. She hooks in the audience and commands the stage with her presence, while opening up and sharing her personal story in a heartfelt way. It seemed like everyone in the audience was moved by this performance. This show is the real deal!... full review
