About this show

'Check-in/Check-out' is devised by Outside Edge’s ensemble of professional actors in recovery. Plunging the audience into the heart of addiction, the production presents the performers’ personal narratives of recovery and positions these stories in context next to contributing social factors.

Co-facilitated by veteran West End performer Christopher Holt and Matt Steinberg, whose production of ‘Tumulus’ won the Origins Award and sold out at last year’s VAULT Festival, ‘Check-in/Check-out’ will follow the structure of Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous 12 steps of recovery and blur the lines between performance and confession. Using Outside Edge’s unique brand of anarchic energy and outsider humour, our performers will share the oppression and violence felt by substance misuse.

‘Check-in/Check-out’ is not a cautionary tale about addiction. It is an authentic account of what it feels like to live on the edge of society and on the edge between life and death.
