McOnie Company DRUNK


2014 Curve Theatre, Leicester / Bridewell Theatre, London

  • Nominated for the Emerging Artist Award at the National Dance Awards

This all singing, all dancing drinks menu is a big-hearted dance revue that explores our relationship with our most popular drug of choice: alcohol. With original songs composed by the Drama Desk Award winning and Tony Award nominated composer Grant Olding, DRUNK is a tipsy evening of song and dance entertainment with more than a hiccup of good humour.

Following the course of one woman’s blind date, we meet an array of unlikely characters each with striking similarities to the drinks they each go on to order. What starts off as an innocent happy hour ends as a riotous lock in.

  • ‘DRUNK erupts like an explosion of kinetic energy- an entirely original show with live (and lively) new songs by Grant Olding. A bold new departure that's the best show of its kind since contact. ’
  • ‘Bubbles with humour, cheek and poignance.’
  • ‘A dazzlingly gorgeous show.’
  • ‘McOnie has pushed the boundaries.’
