Description

'Blackouts were the worst. Blackouts made me forget… Thank God for blackouts.' Meet the woman who finds herself urinating off the top of the Scott Monument in Edinburgh. The man who nearly burns down a stranger’s kitchen. The mother who almost beats her son to death in a drunken rage. Blackout is the honest, brutal, uplifting and darkly comic story of alcoholics, and ultimately of their hope in recovery. Scripted entirely from interviews with recovering addicts, including the writer. 'Stories of euphoria, hedonism, recklessness... shaken and stirred... a lively if sobering evening' **** (Scotsman). 'Outstanding' ***** (LondonTheatre.co.uk). www.madeinscotlandshowcase.com
