CHEERS! After a sold-out run at the Adelaide Fringe and a summer season at the Edinburgh Fringe, Australian storyteller and sommelier Anna Thomas heads to Stillington Mill, near York, tonight for a Theatre At The Mill night on the vino.

Thomas’s show, How To Drink Like A Wa**er, is an occasionally emotional, mostly ridiculous, always delightful story of a fabulous tasting flight of South Australian wines and 12 months of sobering self-discovery.

Thomas’s 8pm comedy monologue follows one woman’s accidental journey from corporate highflyer and shallow wine novice to full-blown wa**ker where, with a little rudimentary knowledge to accompany her game face, voila, she became so much more (co-owning  the Treasury 1860 wine bar in Adelaide by the way).

Part performance, part storytelling, part wine-tasting, this Fringe hit comes with a full-bodied narrative and a moreish finish at 9.30pm. Tickets update: sold out.
