Written by Susan Nickson and starring Sheridan Smith ROSIE MOLLOY GIVES UP EVERYTHING is a brand new comedy which follows high functioning addict Rosie Molloy as she navigates the ups and downs of addiction.
Rosie Molloy (Sheridan Smith) is addicted to everything – smoking, alcohol, Terry’s Chocolate Oranges, Xanax, Adderall, caffeine… the list goes on. After an embarrassing incident at her brother Joey’s wedding Rosie wakes up in hospital and decides to change her life by “giving up everything”. But giving up everything is easier said than done. With a dawning realisation that her addictions are destroying her friendships, family and work life, she also starts to question that by giving up everything – is she also giving up the very thing that makes her Rosie?
Hilarious and painfully honest, this bold new series re-examines our understanding of addiction, loss, love and family life.
