Have you ever made a monkey of yourself?

Drink with a Chimp image - square copyAt the Spacious Places Recovery Centre the first thing to know is that recovery from addiction isn’t about giving up drink and drugs – that is where your journey begins. Common Chorus have been listening to and learning from people who have hit rock bottom, whose lives have become unmanageable and who have come together as part of something bigger than themselves; to save each other’s lives.

There is an animal inside all of us, and these people have a story about how they learned to tame it. Drawing upon biographical stories, 12-step and Professor Steve Peters’ Chimp Paradox; this is a story of hope for anyone who has ever wanted to be ‘better’.

Common Chorus is a new theatre company based in Leeds led by Director Simon Brewis that gives platforms to unheard voices. Lynsey Jones and Daniel Ingram Brown have been working alongside Simon with clients at Spacious Places Recovery Centre to develop Drink With a Chimp.
