When Thoughts Attack

WTA kelly nov 2013.gif


written and performed by Kelly Kinsella

directed by Padraic Lillis (winner best director NYIT 2013, NYFringe 2013)

In this honest and funny show about anxiety, Kinsella begs to answer the question "Is everyone crazy or is it just me?"

In WHEN THOUGHTS ATTACK, a woman walks into a restaurant to order lunch and is swept up into a whirlpool of anxiety over every life choice that has led her to this meal. Clinging to her sense of humor and an emergency Xanax, she teeters between the salmon or a complete nervous breakdown. Never has the act of making a decision been so entertaining!
