Diving into the Wreck

All Saints Centre, Lewes 

Tues 13 November, 7.45pm

Diving into the Wreck is a multi-media production in which individuals in recovery from addiction tell their own story in their own words through film, audio and live performance. The work explores what’s lost and what’s salvaged in the journey of addiction, evoking its craziness, nastiness, predictable routines, dark humour and secret worlds.

"A superb show, heart-breaking and warm-hearted at the same time."

Note: tickets bought online from now onwards will be kept on the door in a named envelope.
