TCL Productions to Bring THE MUSHROOM CURE to FringeNYC, 8/8-22

TCL Productions will present The Mushroom Cure as part of the 18th annual New York International Fringe Festival - FringeNYC.

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 a 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 a formidable pharmacopoeia, Adam's relentless pursuit of his unorthodox cure is at once hilarious, harrowing, and heartrending.

The Mushroom Cure premiered at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, garnering widespread praise:

This completely true story crests a growing wave of scientific and mainstream interest in the medical use of hallucinogens. The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and The New Yorker are just a few of the periodicals that have recently covered this topic.

One of New York's most in-demand stand ups and storytellers, Adam was a winner of the Leffe Craft Your Character Storytelling Competition. He is currently penning a memoir based on The Mushroom Cure. More info at and
