It’s a long build up to a very big wet and the frogs are singing out for rain. Broome Prison sits across the road from the Sober Up Centre, like another resort in a tourist town, promising a temporary reprieve from the tightening cycle of “black out” drinking.
Written by Dan Lee, directed by multiple-award-winner Iain Sinclair and featuring a stellar cast, Bottomless is both heart wrenching and side-splittingly funny. It captures the diversity of Broome’s residents and reminds us that no group is out of addiction’s reach.
Featuring Jack Charles, Mark Coles Smith, Jim Daly, Julie Forsyth, Margaret Harvey, Alex Menglet and Mark Wilson
