“When we get home the first thing Rachel does is pour me a glass of wine. A big one.  
Then she runs me a bath.  
I should find rotting corpses more often, she wasn’t this nice to me on my birthday.” 

Since losing her job Helen’s main responsibility has been to pick up Harvey’s poo. But when she finds a dead body in the local dog park suddenly everyone is paying attention to her. At least for a little while. But now she's had a taste of the limelight Helen isn't going to fade into the shadows without a fight.  

Fans of Fleabag, I May Destroy You and I Hate Suzie will love this dark comedy from Alison Carr, whose sold-out performances of The Last Quiz Night on Earth were due to open at the SJT in March. 

Dogwalker was submitted though the SJT Open Script Submissions window, was longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Playwrighting and we are developing the play for a potential run at the Edinburgh Festival. 

A semi-staged performance, directed by the SJT’s Carne Trust Associate Director Chelsey Gillard.
