And that’s verbatim …

vertabim-blog-imageThe Secret Illness is creating a verbatim theatre piece and you can be a part of it’s creation!

Verbatim theatre is a form of documented theatre in which plays are constructed from the precise words spoken by people interviewed about a particular event or topic.

We want to create our verbatim theatre piece from intrusive thoughts submitted by people living with OCD from The Secret Illness community.

To be a part of this all you need to do is send an email to salon@thesecretillness.com with one, or several, intrusive thoughts you battle with, or have battled with in the past. Single sentences please. We need a mix of the mundane and the unusual. All submissions will be kept anonymous.

Working with the intrusive thoughts you send us, and others taken from the Wall Posts, we will workshop them with actors and through that process produce a theatrical piece.

We will have our first opportunity to perform the piece on 26th November in London at The Hospital Club.  This is an exciting new step for us as it will be the first time we are running a live event for a ‘non-OCD’ audience, helping us in our remit to build awareness of what it is really like to live with OCD using the creative arts.

We are looking into other opportunities to perform the piece at other events. We’ll keep you posted on that.
