We all need relationship advice sometimes. In Mandy Schmieder's case, that advice is silly, impractical, or just plain wrong. It's provided by nine different characters, from a Southern TV chef to an insecure cop. She plays them all.

Anxiety's full of laughs, but it has dramatic meat as well. Schmieder has graced Charleston stages with roles in Keeping Watch, Macbeth, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. But she's also an accomplished comedienne who performs at the People's Improv Theater in New York.

It's a painfully true story. The show details Schmieder's potential breakup with her husband. The twist is that the audience takes on her role, listens to the characters' advice, and helps to decide her fate. Love him or leave him? It's up to them to find the right happy ending.
