Bray native to hold preview before Edinburgh Festival

“OCDMe ” A one woman show about living with O.C.D. will be having one night of previews before they head off to Edinburgh Fringe Festival representing local writing and storytelling. 

Written and directed by Aisling Smith. A Bray native. This project is funded by the arts council. For one night only the play will be previewing at the DU Players in Trinity College. Saturday 30th of July 2022 before packing up and going on tour to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Sure, we all get a bit stressed sometimes. We all feel a bit isolated, ashamed and terrified; convinced that the most minute action may somehow have catastrophic effects on our loved ones… or is that just me?

Sarah was diagnosed with OCD a decade ago. She wants to tell you her story and let you know that there’s much more to it than the stereotypes we see on TV, like obsessive hand-washing (although in her case, that’s definitely part of it).

Stage manager Gemma Nicole Trimble said
