Common Chorus’ Drink With a Chimp is
a new play about one woman’s struggle with addiction and her journey
to recovery. Based on biographical stories from clients at the
Spacious Places recovery centre, Sally’s story is one of loss and
desperation, of hope and reconciliation to her long lost brother.
This is a story about the realisation that recovery isn’t only about
giving up drink and drugs, that’s just where it begins. As Sally
discovers, recovery is a much bigger journey.
on the 12 step programme and Prof. Steve Peters’ The Chimp Paradox this is
a story of hope for anyone who has ever wanted to be ‘better’.
