Globe Theatre acknowledges Drs. Morris & Jacqui Shumiatcher for their generous donation, which enables the bold, imaginative traditions of the series to grow and develop.

WORLD PREMIERE

Dean keeps to himself, stays in his room, and avoids anything or anyone that could disrupt his little world. When one of his compulsive rituals leads to an unfortunate incident, Dean is forced to break out of the confines of his obsessions and let others into his life.

A quirky drama about a young man named Dean with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder coping with his behaviours. O.C.Dean is a series of monologues depicting multiple aspects of Dean’s life from the past and the present.

O.C.Dean is creator Daniel Maslany’s first solo project after several years of experience with Globe Theatre as an actor, sound designer, teacher and artist.

*WARNING: This production contains some mature language. Please contact the Box Office if you have any questions.
