Heroin is the drug of a recession. Drink is for the low and the depressed. So what do our city streets tell us about the people who live on them? And what about the other people, the ordinary decent folk who just want to earn a living. Why should they have to see someone with a needle in their arm? Why should they have their walk home from a hard day’s work interrupted by someone asking yet again for change.
We are asking for change. What do you think? Are the addicts the ones ruining the city? Or are we letting them down? What ever we are doing (or are we doing anything?) is not working and it needs to be different. Let’s discuss. Let’s love and fight. It’s worth a try. It always is. Tonight the holy show looks at how we live with addiction, we’re looking at street begging, open drug use and how to help the homeless. 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.
