A FORENSIC examination of the highs and horrors of binge drinking, Thirsty, mixes verbatim text from real life (often hazy) confessions alongside live music and extraordinary physical performance at the Drum Theatre, Plymouth, until tomorrow.

The theatre company The Paper Birds set up a hotline where hundreds left stories ranging from bizarre stag night excesses to sexual abuse (as female binge drinking rises) and even accidental deaths.

This performance of a country's love affair with booze remains objective in its investigation of the highs and lows.

It is performed as one epic night out on the town with Fringe First Award winners The Paper Birds' trademark honest, direct and humorous style.
