Coming to Toronto Fringe 2009: BAGS: Obsessions of a Hoardaholic

From Press Release   

BAGS: Obsessions of a Hoardaholic
one man – 7 nights – many obsessions
Written & Performed by  Lee  Michael  Buckman
Directed by  Brad Calcaterra

Glimpses of an obsessive personality and some of his adventures as he attempts desperately to cling onto objects and things that he thinks will help him navigate through life. While exploring and attempting to understand his OCD related instincts better, he searches for & finds the root of it and discovers that there’s a little bit of this inside each of us.

When I was writing this show, I thought I was outing my freak, but the more I spoke to people about it and heard their own experiences with obsessive nature, the more I realized how human and universal it was. The extra pens you stash in your desk. The packets of Sweet and Low from the coffee shop. That was my mother’s favorite. We found hundreds of them stashed in her stuff after she died. Or even hoarding your heart. I began this project to out myself as a hoarder and discovered we are all indeed hoarding something.
