Shifty, a working class waster and dedicated session warrior documents the six stages of the evolution of an Irish sesh-head. The Streets. The Gaff. The Club. The Rave. The Festival and The Final Comedown. An inward look of an Irish youth’s strongest obsession. It’s love of the session. Is it a harmless trait? Are we swallowing poison and calling it love? Where do we draw the line between disposition and addiction?
Playtime: 70 mins
No late admissions.
