Fix (Worklight Theatre)

By | Published on Monday 21 August 2017

‘Fix’ is the result of two years of research, speaking to those who have experienced addiction. This performance aims to share some of the stories heard through this project, not verbatim, but with the creation of three fictional characters: Robyn, Zach and Maggie. An addiction counsellor, a gambling addict, and the wife of a sex addict – these individuals provide a diverse perspective on some of the behavioural aspects of addiction. Perhaps the most stimulating part of this piece is the persistent narration of the chemical processes in the brain that lead to addictive behaviour. Essentially, ‘Fix’ breaks down an often inaccessible subject, one clouded with stigma, and forges a window through which to look in, and understand.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 27 Aug.
