Multi award-winning company Paper Birds present their critically acclaimed, sellout show Thirsty.
Based on our nation's love
affair with alcohol, Thirsty weaves together real stories, memories and booze-based confessions, collected from a ‘drunken hotline’ and an online questionnaire.
Fusing live music, verbatim text and stunning physical theatre, The Paper Birds explore the stories and social repercussions of lost memories and gained traumas, bruised knees, uncontrollable laughter, urine
stained beds and sore heads, particularly focusing on the women waving the flag for ‘Booze-Britain.’
A dynamic theatrical
exploration delving beyond statistics, facts and figures ‘Thirsty’ looks to the faces and
the voices of everyone who likes a drink and asks why, as a Nation, are we so thirsty?
