‘It is a show about a ballsy, smart woman who, despite the six stories, really does have it together.’
Daily Review, AUS

Jen Kirkman is back with a new one woman show that’s based on the theme of her new book I Know What I’m Doing & Other Lies I Tell Myself (Dispatches From a Life Under Construction.)

These six short stories (not from the book) add up to one big show about times in Jen’s life when she thought she knew what she was doing and nothing went according to plan; from a failed childhood talent show, to early anxiety over nuclear war, a fear of flying class that didn’t work, and relationships that were too hot or too cold but never just right. Book signing to follow the show!

Running Time: 60 mins
Age Recommendation: 16+

‘Kirkman describes herself as impulsive and prone to bad decision-making, but her humour is relatable and her demeanour warm and self-assured. It is a show about a ballsy, smart woman who, despite the six stories, really does have it together. Or at least knows how to create comedy gold out of impulsive decision-making.’
