Kelly Kinsella, hailed by Manhattan With A Twist as “Shamelessly brilliant,” is thrilled to bring her award winning and hilarious one-woman play WHEN THOUGHTS ATTACK to Women’s Week in Provincetown. In this honest and funny show about anxiety, Kinsella (“she’s like us, just funnier” - nytheatre.com) 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 sucked into a whirlpool of anxiety. Clinging to her sense of humor and an emergency Xanax, she teeters between the salmon or a complete nervous breakdown. The act of ordering lunch has never been so entertaining!
Kinsella’s style is raw, unique, personal yet universal, in the vein of storytellers of Amy and David Sedaris and Lily Tomlin. WHEN THOUGHTS ATTACK was an official selection in NYC’s ninth annual soloNOVA Festival and features direction from Padraic Lillis (Best Director - FringeNYC 2013; Best Director - NYIT Awards, 2013).
WHEN THOUGHTS ATTACK originally received a staged reading hosted by the Actor’s Fund of New York and was workshopped at Ars Nova in NYC. The show went on to appear Off- Broadway at the Duke on 42 St., as well as regionally and on college campuses along the eastern seaboard
