Be Glad You're Neurotic
Be Glad You're Neurotic is a one-man show that is intended as a light-hearted and comedic look into the condition of neurosis in the 21st century: how it manifests itself, how many people claim to be neurotic, and what can be done about it. the story charts the narrator's own experience of buying a book called Be Glad You're Neurotic from an op-shop, and discovering at the same time that his girlfriend intends to leave him, partly because she thinks he is too neurotic. This sets the narrator on a journey to discover what neurosis means, through research and his own experience. the journey of the piece is that of the narrator's love affair with the book, from infatuation, to uncertainty, through to an eventual disillusionment. Which isn't surprising, since the book was written in 1939, and most of what it has to say is quite ludicrous. the audience should relate to it, partly because most of the experiences described in the show have happened to most people at some stage, from relationship breakups, to attacks of melancholia, to regrets over the past; but these particular ones are perhaps more 'neurotic' than most.
