Thirsty and The Alchemystorium at Trestle Arts Base, St Albans
A FORENSIC examination of the highs and horrors of binge drinking is behind The Paper Birds performance of Thirsty at the Trestle Arts Base in St Albans this Saturday.
A hit from the Edinburgh Fringe 2011, it mixes verbatim text from real life – and often hazy – confessions alongside live music and physical performance.
The company set up a hotline where hundreds left stories ranging from bizarre stag night excess to sexual abuse and even accidental deaths.
But the performance of a country’s love affair with booze remains objective in its investigation of the highs and lows.
The performance begins at 7.30pm at Trestle in Russet Drive.
