Paul Merton and Suki Webster star in a warm-hearted and surprising comedy play about a comedian meeting his number one fan.

Danny Heywood wakes in his hotel room to find that he is not alone. Sheryl, a fan on a mission, has let herself into the room and is determined not to leave until she gets what she wants. But what exactly does she want?

The ensuing stand off is a hilarious game of verbal cat and mouse as they both endeavour to maintain control of a very bizarre situation. This comic play - staged in real time - observes the obsessive, narcissistic culture of so-called celebrity - the desire to be famous and the urge to be near it.

My Obsession enjoyed a sold out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014, where it garnered excellent reviews.
