A World Premiere
In the Irish border town of Newry, Chrissy promises her sister Claire that after one final drink she will go to The Dry House to get sober. Does she mean it this time?
An all-female cast perform a powerful and emotionally searing new play about love, loss, and the potential for hope after years of self-destruction.
