Whitty Theatre: 'Thirsty'

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 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.

Tickets: Adults £12, School groups £9 available from ticketsource.co.uk.
