Julia Mullins was a thief, a prostitute and a drunk. Jess Love is a carnie, a queer and likes a drink.
Get taken in by the self-supporting arms of this astounding Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. Where twisted storytelling and spectacular circus skills are shaken and stirred, with one part dark comedy, one part serenity and three parts hostility, hilarity and honesty.
A much anticipated solo work by queer Australian carnie Jess Love (The Candy Butchers, La Soiree), this must be the only 12-step addiction program in town to feature live trapeze. Linking her own gritty life experience with that of her great, great, great, great grandmother Julia Mullins (thief, prostitute and drunk) transported to Australia courtesy of the Crown, Jess Love’s own mayhem is sturdy fodder for this savagely funny, fearless and genuinely uplifting show.
‘Savagely funny’ acrobatic jaunt through highs and lows of addiction’
