“So what brings you to the care industry? And please don’t say you want to make a difference.”
When Andy, an idealistic young graduate, gets a job in a Wet House, a homeless hostel where residents can drink alcohol, he is plunged into a twilight world where the rules about what is right and what is normal have become a little blurred. And that’s just among the other staff.
A comedy tinged with sadness and tragedy, Wet House tells the story of how to keep your head when everyone else is off theirs. Based on his own first-hand experience working in a wet house, Paddy Campbell’s startlingly original first full length play asks, “Who will look after the people that no one else will look after?”
Playwright, Lee Hall said: “It’s fitting that in its 40th birthday year Live Theatre have unearthed and commissioned yet another exciting new writing talent. Paddy’s play possesses a subject matter that is important and prescient, his characters smack of authenticity and there’s a searing emotional depth to the piece that is both arresting and heart breaking. He’s also seriously funny. It marks a highly impressive debut.”
