Sara Barron: For Worse (PBJ Management)

By | Published on Sunday 12 August 2018

It’s quite hard to resist spoilery gag-sharing for this review. But you know what that means: the gags are *good*. So, that stipulated, Sara Barron wants to tell us about moving here to the UK, getting married, having a child, being conflicted between American positivism and British reserve and, er, the sex play she wrote when she was too young to know anything about sex. With the obvious exception of the latter, it’s maybe well-trodden ground, but Barron certainly owns it, and the room. This is a candid and – more importantly – well written, beautifully delivered and damned funny show, with a finely judged dose of gleeful filth alongside some pointed truths about being a mother, a wife and a lover.

Just The Tonic at The Tron, until 26 Aug.
