Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

Maiden Speech Festival, Tristan Bates Theatre, November 2019

Ivy's life is one of routine. She gets up, she drops the dog off at the neighbour's, teaches for eight hours, picks up the dog from the neighbour's, and goes home. She watches Netflix. She sees her boyfriend. She calls her sister. She also has vivid daydreams about having sex with her dad, killing her baby niece, and having her skin sliced open. No matter how hard she tries, she can't make the thoughts go away and she's terrified she's going to act on them. As she struggles to negotiate her first Real Adult Job and Serious Relationship and Normal Human Life, these thoughts begin to consume her every waking moment. Based on real experiences, Can't Stop Won't Stop explores the lesser-known aspects of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
