A huge sell-out success at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2009, Barflies
takes a look at the pains and glories of drunkenness and all the humour, horror, hope and devastation it can bring. Drawn from the short stories and poems of cult American writer Charles Bukowski, Barflies is a rumbustious encounter with his alter-ego Henry Chinaski and a bevvy of the women who shaped his life and work.
