Clean at 17
This event has passed
Award Winning actress Katie O’Brien presents a fresh, funny, and taboo-smashing take on addiction and recovery. We’re familiar with stories of addicted pop stars to born again pimps but what does being 23 years clean really mean?
Katie has been in a love-hate relationship with 12 Step fellowships and modern day psychology’s take on addiction. She has a few things to say about this and her lived experience through a series of skits, stories and over sharing.
Hilarious, brutally honest, heart-warming and provocative; a one-woman show that challenges perceptions of recovering from addiction, pathologising humanity and the quest of self-discovery.
“….improvising in the most risky way and it felt incredibly raw and really powerful..”
“….What amazes me is how she just riffs off everything that is going on..”
“..Its the way its really therapeutic for everyone..”
“Katie has you in the palm of her hand for the entire length of her show. It’s got audience participation at its rawest, a banging playlist and cake. ‘Clean At 17’ is a visceral and honest description of someone with lived experience of alcohol dependency.”
