Psychotic Bathtub addresses Ophelia’s experience of her psychotic disorder while in the bath. Interact with the environment through her eyes: argue with your rubber duck, drink wine, add more bath water. Each interaction could lead to death, great joy, or even worse: your duck drowns, the wine turns to poison, the bathroom gets flooded. Will you find a way out of the scariest parts of your mind? Maybe not.
