DRY is an edge of your seat drama about the misuse alcohol and the couple next door.

The Wilsons may be middle class and middle aged but there is nothing middling about their alcohol intake. Can they keep the ‘toxic’ out of ‘intoxicated’ and keep the family together, or is it a case of sorrows drowned? DRY is a one-hour drama, originally commissioned by the NHS, with music and humour alongside its serious message.

BOOK NOW Via Eventbrite (Opens in a New Window) 

James and Ellen Wilson find themselves indulging in one dinner party - and one bottle of wine - too many. When supper talk turns from light and amusing to barbed and accusatory, is it time for them to think about their alcohol intake? Observing all is Chloe, their teenage daughter, whose cello playing provides a live musical emotional barometer of the household.
