The Mushroom Cure
Inspired by a scientific study showing that hallucinogenic mushrooms can potentially cure obsessive-compulsive disorder, Adam Strauss embarked on a program of vigilante psychopharmacology. As he uncovers an underground community of clandestine chemists, falls in love with a brilliant psychologist who takes him on as her unofficial research subject, and decamps to a remote island accompanied only by his geriatric pug dog and formidable pharmacopoeia, Adam's relentless pursuit of his unorthodox cure is at once hilarious, harrowing, and heartrending.

Strauss, winner of Leffe's Craft Your Character storytelling contest, premiered this completely true monologue at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to packed houses and widespread critical acclaim:

"Storytelling of the highest order Utterly, absolutely absorbing Hugely intelligent An incredibly engaging performer."  -The Scotsman

"Intensely gripping, irreducibly psychedelic and emotionally charged There really aren't many more naturally gifted storytellers than Strauss"  -ThreeWeeks

"An amazing storyteller and stand up comedian Outstanding As he tells his incredible story the audience is mesmerized by his every word."  -EdFest Magazine

"Extremely gifted"  -The Skinny

"A revelation"  -Broadway Baby

"Highly recommended"  -The Herald (UK)
