3 Millennium Square, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 3AD

A dynamic theatrical exploration delving beyond statistics, facts and figures that sees the multi-award-winning Paper Birds look into the faces of everyone who likes a drink and asks why, as a nation, are we so thirsty?

This critically acclaimed, Edinburgh sell-out show weaves together real stories, memories and booze-based confessions collected from a ‘drunken hotline’ and online questionnaires.

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.'
