Neurotics Anonymous

Comedy drama by Ben Crompton. Iain has OCD, lives with his mum and has never had a serious girlfriend. But now he has fallen in love and his life is about to change.

Iain is a list-ticking, tap-checking, badge-wearing member of the OCD Club (not an actual club). When he joins a support group, he falls in love with group leader Anna. But will his mother Elsie and group member Beany stand in his way? A day out brings it all to a head in this honest, warm hearted comedy written by Ben Crompton.

Directed by Nadia Molinari.

45 minutes

They say write about what you know. I have Tourette’s Syndrome and OCD. So I wrote about that.
