'When you leave here, everything else is going to be exactly the same. The only thing that’s changed is you.’
Based on personal experience, 'Rust' follows 20-year-old Evie over a month in rehab following a mental health crisis. Candid and sharp, the musical explores her relationships with the other patients, who range from a twenty-something alcoholic to a cynical, middle-aged drag queen. The audience joins them in the immensely difficult but inexpressibly worthwhile process of recovery and how it feels to realise that you still remember how to laugh.
