Presented by Katie O’Brien
Award-winning actress and comedian Katie O’Brien presents a fresh, funny, and taboo-smashing take on addiction and recovery. We’re familiar with stories of addicted pop stars to born again pimps but what does being 22 years clean really mean? She has been in a love-hate relationship with 12 Step fellowship and modern-day psychology for over two decades and has a few things to say about why it works and why it doesn’t. Hilarious, brutally honest, heart-warming and provocative, a one-woman show that challenges perceptions of recovering from addiction, pathologizing humanity and the quest of self-discovery.
“O’Brien’s reign of the stage is commanding in its ability to continually elicit laughter and empathy from a receptive crowd” – A Younger Theatre

About the company
Katie O’Brien is a writer-performer, creativity coach & artistic director, living and working in London and Ireland. Katie makes work about the unsaid or about revealing another aspect of a known subject, calling out society’s hypocrisy through humour, improvisation and autobiographical material. Her work lends from many forms, including clown, cabaret and immersive theatre. Katie’s strong point is her ability to work in the moment and respond to the audience’s reactions or answers. No matter which issue Katie is taking aim at, she will always make you laugh and think.
Katie’s current work uses her own experience with addiction and 12-step “recovery” to question stereotypes and assumptions about alcohol and substance dependency, pathology identity and mental health.
