Lost in Thought at Theatre503

  • Theatre503 503 Battersea Park Road London, SW11 3BW United Kingdom (map)

Felicity's on a fantastic date...except she's stuck in the restaurant toilet, trapped by nothing but her own alarming thoughts.


Direct from the Edinburgh Fringe 2018, this is the London premiere of a new play from Lucy Danser about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, wasted potential and motherly love. Directed by King's Head Junior Associate Helena Jackson (★★★★★ EdFest for ‘Around the World in 80 Days’), developed with Soho Theatre's Young Company. 

Drawn both from extensive research and Danser’s first-hand experience of living with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Lost in Thought is a thought-provoking and empathetic exploration of a condition more often used as a flippant punchline than truly understood as a life-altering neurological disorder.


★★★★ 'The skill of this two-hander is the interplay between Felicity (Kerry Fitzgerald) and Marie, played particularly memorably by Lisa Keast, as genial, homely, confused, and the initial object of the problem she will try to solve.' The Scotsman

★★★★ 'Here is a play leavened gorgeously with compassion, yet never worthy. A tiny triumph' The Wee Review

★★★★ 'The result is a fascinating look at a much-misunderstood affection which doesn't forget to tell an entertaining story' Arts Fringes

★★★★ 'An intensely moving two hander…Danser’s thought-provoking script is enhanced by perfectly pitched, humorous moments' Fringe Biscuit
