About this event

She's been in the same room for a while now, and things are starting to get weird. Out of a smokescreen of dirty laundry and shaggy dogs, a mysterious voice challenges her to cut the bull. But can she work out how?
Does unravelling the truth mean unravelling herself in the process?
If the foundation of sanity is knowing fact from fiction, was it the outside world or her own brain that first started feeling a bit shaky?
When the hell is the sun going to come up?
Join emerging writer and performer Poppy Mee as she attempts to punchline her way through a very dark night of the soul.
