When Andy, an idealistic young graduate, gets a job in a wet house, a homeless hostel where residents can drink alcohol, he is plunged into a twilight world where the rules about what is right and what is normal have become a little blurred. And that's just among the other staff. Based on his own first-hand experience working in a wet house, Paddy Campbell's award-winning debut full length play asks who will look after the people that no one else will look after?

All actors need to be comfortable and able to act drunk and use frequent strong language.
