Meet the woman who finds herself urinating off the top of the Scott Monument in Edinburgh. The man who nearly burns down a stranger’s kitchen. The mother who almost beats her son to death in a drunken rage. Scripted entirely from interviews with recovering addicts – including the writer – Blackout is the honest, brutal, uplifting and darkly comic story of alcoholics, and of their recovery.
