It's a stormy midsummer's night in the middle of nowhere. The recently accredited facilitator of a sobriety support group is preparing for his first session. One by one, the addicts arrive. Unable to be restrained, they become increasingly distracted, maniacal, and, yes, intoxicated. During the course of this chaotic night, these madcaps will poison each other with ageing potions, conduct scientific experiments, fall in love with a baby, confront their respect fears, attempt a sex change, and rehearse a non-existent production of Euripides' 'The Bacchae'.
A work of startling originality and/or unbridled mania.
All tickets $25 including booking fee.
9:15 pm start Tuesday – Saturday, 7:30pm Sunday
