Joe Caffrey – Performer of the Year

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?

One of The Guardian’s Top 10 Plays of 2013

“A thrillingly funny and painful vision of life in a homeless shelter... All hail a fine new voice.” - THE GUARDIAN

“Paddy Campbell’s smartly structured debut play defies expectations and finds a strong, theatrical language in which to tell some unpalatable truths.”- THE TELEGRAPH

Wet House was first performed at Live Theatre, Newcastle as part of the company’s 40th birthday year on Thursday 19 September 2013.
