About this show

How do you keep your head when everyone else is off theirs? "So what brings you to the care industry? And please don't say you want to make a difference." When Andy, an idealistic young graduate, gets a job in a Wet House, a homeless hostel where residents can drink alcohol, he is plunged into a twilight world where the rules about what is right and what is normal have become a little blurred. And that's just among the other staff. A comedy tinged with sadness and tragedy, Wet House tells the story of how to keep your head when everyone else is off theirs. Based on his own first-hand experience, Paddy Campbell's startlingly original first full length play asks who will look after the people that no one else will look after?

Duration: approx. 2hours including interval. Suitability: 14+. Contains strong language, scenes of violence and adult themes.
