PORTLAND – “Drunks,” an unflinching look at an AA meeting, will be presented by Mad Horse Theatre April 7 to May 1.

Christine Louise Marshall directs this adaptation of Gary Lennon’s play “Blackout.”

Guest artists are Brent Askari, Burke Brimmer, Nancy Brown, Peter Brown, Shannon Campbell, Liz Chambers, Dave Currier, Mike Dow, Cathy Hickson, John Hickson, Chris Horton, Sheila Jackson, Jessica Porter, Tootie Van Reenan and Aurora White.
