About SICK! Festival: Obsessed

Following Meghan, someone who knows pretty much everything about Beyonce, Hunger Games, Zac Efron and BTS, but who also finds that other ‘obsessions’ make their way to the surface, Obsessed is the semi-autobiographical debut play by Lauren Yvonne Townsend based on her experiences living with OCD.

The play has been commissioned by The Lowry through their 2023/24 ‘Developed With’ programme. It looks at at family relationships, grief, fandom culture, and the influence of social media on the affects, triggers and maintenance of our mental wellbeing.

This brand-new work has been commissioned by The Lowry through its Artist Development Programme ‘Developed With The Lowry’ and is also supported by Arts Council England.
