Sean Daniels' Off-Broadway hit described by New York Times as a "fizzily fast paced production", is a laugh out loud poignant tale of a life spinning hideously out of control.

Rollicking through this "bonfire of disasters" and seemingly infinite bottomless pits, this autobiographical confessional, strips bare the truth behind an enabling industry and guides us through the pitfalls of a self confessed "recovering Mormon" who turns repeatedly to the AA for help. Having no truck with religion, finding his "higher power" to remain in recovery comes to him in a life redeeming unexpected way.

This performance will conclude with a post show discussion.

The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council, with additional support from The Scottish Government Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund.
