AIM Theatre presents
Just Barking
by Joe Wiltshire Smith

Performed in rep with That Day on the 18th & 20th October

Stumbling back into her flat drunk at 10:30am, Tammy, a trainee nurse, decides to confess EVERYTHING to camera. To confront some demons, co-workers, postmen… this could take a while… You think you know her, but maybe you don’t know half of it.

Tammy’s life is a frantic mess of drink, insomnia and patient drama, with the usual hangover worse than death the next day – ’til one night, coming home from work, she get’s some self-help advice from the most unlikely of gurus… in fact, he’s a Chihuahua.

A richly black comedy, this one-woman, drastic reimagining of Gogol’s ‘Diary of a Madman’ investigates the strain on healthcare, the toxic cycle of hustle culture, the deafening toll on mental health and the rediscovery of the self.

Running Time: TBC (One act with no interval)
