Thirsty: The Paper Birds Theatre Company

Mixing live music, verbatim text and physical theatre with their trademark honest, direct and humorous approach, The Paper Birds explore our nation's love affair with alcohol, weaving together hundreds of real life (often hazy) memories and booze based confessions gathered over a series of interviews, performed as one epic night out on the town.

Jemma McDonnell and Kylie Walsh will play all the characters they interviewed, from kids drinking in the park to old men in working men's clubs.

Why, as a nation, are we so thirsty? From the bizarre stag night excess to untold stories of sexual abuse, and even accidental deaths, Paper Birds look beyond the statistics of Binge Drinking Britain, into the traumas, bruised knees, sore heads and urine stained beds...
