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 – which a show at Winchester on 30 June at the Discovery Centre (7.30pm, tickets £14).
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 started with a five day run at the Soho Theatre in London followed by twelve dates finishing up in 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.
