Felicity’s on a fantastic date…except she’s stuck in the restaurant toilet, trapped by nothing but her own alarming thoughts.

A new play from Lucy Danser about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, wasted potential and motherly love. Drawn from both extensive research and Danser’s first-hand experience of living with OCD, Lost in Thought is a thought-provoking and empathetic exploration of a condition more often used as a flippant punchline than truly understood.

Chatback Theatre specialises in character driven theatre inspired by and based on personal stories. Lost in Thought is our first show created and produced by an all-female company.

'The skill of this two-hander is the interplay between Felicity (Kerry Fitzgerald) and Marie, played particularly memorably by Liza Keast, as genial, homely, confused, and the initial object of the problem she will try to solve'
