Written by Nancy Harris and directed by Paddy Breathnach, with a brilliant cast, the 8×30′ series is a compelling, painfully funny story about the complexities of family relationships, love and personal strength in the face of addiction.
The series follows Shiv Sheridan as she returns home to Dublin after years of partying in London, sober and full of good intentions. However, being back with her family makes staying on ‘the dry’ much harder than she expected.
THE DRY was produced by Element Pictures in association with Screen Ireland and ITV Studios.
“If you like shows with meaty relationships, high-strung sisters, dirtbag exes and a juicy mean streak tempered by a thoughtful understanding of human frailty, watch this.” – New York Times
“This painfully funny dramedy is like an Irish Fleabag – as dark and nourishing as a pint of Guinness.” – The Guardian
“The humour is dark and nuanced, the psychological observations on addiction utterly convincing and the supporting cast an absolute joy.” – The Times
The Dry will tx on 1st March 2023 on RTE One, with all episodes available to watch afterwards on RTE Player. It is now showing on Britbox & ITVX in the UK and in the US on Sundance Now.
