The award-winning Paper Birds Theatre Company present Thirsty.
Based on our nation’s love affair with alcohol, Thirsty weaves together real confessions and hundreds of questionnaires answered by young and old. From nightclubs to working men’s clubs, from house parties to dinner parties; Thirsty relays tales from the happy hours to the early hours. Fusing live music, verbatim text and stunning physical theatre, The Paper Birds examine binge drinking culture in the UK: lost memories, gained traumas, tales of bruised knees, uncontrollable laughter, stained beds and sore heads.
Premiered at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Pleasance Courtyard, 2011.
