Nominated twice for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Show, and Total Fringe Sell Out 2015, 2016 and 2017, Australian comic Sarah Kendall is set to tour the UK with her smash-hit Edinburgh show One-Seventeen.
This is a blistering new hour of storytelling from the creator and star of the highly critically acclaimed hit BBC Radio 4 series Australian Trilogy – the first series of which won the coveted Writers’ Guild Awards 2018 for Best Radio Comedy, with the second series set to broadcast later in 2018.
Sarah will be undertaking a whirlwind tour, starting with a five day run at the Soho Theatre in London followed by twelve dates in June 2018 visiting Norwich, Coventry, York, Richmond, Bradford, Birmingham, Brighton, Canterbury, Reading, Colchester, Swindon and Winchester.
One- Seventeen is an eclectic mix of connected short stories: a family in crisis waiting to see Halley’s Comet, a hamster with organ failure, an astronaut re-entering the atmosphere… One-Seventeen is a show about a number, and all the people contained inside it. Kendall – a storytelling maestro- is at the top of her game, effortlessly combining comedy and tragedy in equal measure.
