DIVING INTO THE WRECK

Date: Tuesday 13 November

Time: 7:45pm

Venue: All Saints Centre 

Friars Walk, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2LE

Diving into the Wreck is a multi-media production in which individuals in recovery from addiction tell their own story in their own words through film, audio and live performance. The work explores what’s lost and what’s salvaged in the journey of addiction, evoking its craziness, nastiness, predictable routines, dark humour and secret worlds.

“A superb show, heart-breaking and warm-hearted at the same time.’

- William Sutton (Read the full review here »)

The work is presented live by Kieran Judge, Daniel Scrivener and Jane Muir with additional contributions on film and in voice recordings from Patrick Seery, Steven (who also contributed music for the production), Leigh Westmore, Elisha Westmore and Faith Rayner. Songs at the Lewes iteration will be performed by Martin Heys (guitar/voice) and Pam Hewitt (ukulele/voice).

The production was developed in Portsmouth by the award-winning team of poet Maggie Sawkins and director Mark C. Hewitt with video sequences filmed and edited by Matt Parsons. Find out more on the Tongues&Grooves website. 

Tickets: £8.00 advance / £10 on the door.
