There’s a lot of talk about addicts but what about the people who love them? What about the people who clean up their sick and talk to their social workers? What about the terrible mothers who drove us to drink? What about the Da who brought us to the pub?
When you’re talking to an addict, the family is always in the room. We are so angry at them but we love them so much. After all, all drunks were once cuddly babies. No one wants to give birth to someone so they can slowly kill themselves. Maybe between us all, we have the answers. Come help us, help eachother as we discuss The Irish Family, our families.
Tonight the Holy Show hears from the Family on experience, strength and hope, on love and redemption and how to cope. Tonight it’s all about real people and real stories. The Holy Show is presented by performance dynamo and modern day spiritual guru Neil Watkins, joined by his band as we have a serious talk with some light entertainment.
The Holy Show also includes a screening of The Rabbit Hole, a short film by Louise Lewis.
