About the Show
Nominee Best Newcomer 2018 Edinburgh Comedy Awards
Nottingham-born Sarah Keyworth is a small girl who worked as a nanny for a smaller girl. In her brilliant debut hour, Sarah questions how this girl is being raised and reflects on her own upbringing, identity and sexuality.
In this semi-autobiographical tale Sarah ponders how her gender identity at a young age may have been skewed by the judgement of others and asks, does this little girl stand a chance in today’s society? Think Girls Just Wanna Have Fun but British, deadpan and in no way similar.
With an effortlessly cool demeanour, Sarah is an engaging and thought-provoking storyteller. Don’t miss this critically-acclaimed performance from a refreshing new comic voice.
