Thirsty at The Quarry Theatre

Thursday 3 October 2019


Main Auditorium

Ticket price

£12.00 (£10.00 concessions)

Based on our nation’s love affair with alcohol, Thirsty weaves together real booze based confessions collected from a ‘drunken hotline’ and hundreds of questionnaires answered by your and old. From nightclubs to working men’s clubs, from house parties to dinner parties; Thirsty relays real accounts from the happy hours to the early hours.

Premiered in 2011 and revived in 2019 for a schools and universities tour, Thirsty fuses verbatim text and stunning physical theatre. The Paper Birds examine binge drinking culture in the UK; with tales of lost memories, gained traumas, bruised knees, uncontrollable laughter, urine stained beds and sore heads.

A dynamic theatre exploration diving beyond statistics, facts and figures Thirsty looks to the faces and voices of everyone who likes a drink and asks why as a nation are we so Thirsty?
