Bryony Kimmings: 7 Day Drunk

A bold, riotously funny one-woman show investigating the link between alcohol and creativity

Bryony Kimmings is NOT an alcoholic. It’s just, she’s always a had a rocky relationship with booze, seemingly to blame for some of her most genius as well as her most hideous creations. Created during a seven day experiment in which Bryony was kept in varying states of intoxication, the show follows the artist as she cracks open her own creative psyche with the help of neuroscientists, pharmacologists, sociologists, a filmmaker and a wayward team of American IT experts.

Two parts song and dance routine to one part breakdown, served on the rocks with a harsh twist of reality, 7 Day Drunk shows Bryony testing her limits and skills as an artist as she investigates whether alcohol really is linked to creativity.

Performed sober.

A huge hit at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, Bryony also won the Total Theatre Award in 2010 for sell-out show Sex Idiot.
