Sarah Keyworth: Dark Horse (Fight In The Dog in association with United Agents)

By | Published on Wednesday 22 August 2018

This is an important show with a powerful message about gender identity and social norms. Never has a performer needed a microphone more – her soft-spoken delivery draws us in, but underestimate her at your peril. It feels as though she has been building up to this moment all her life – the point where she speaks out about her personal struggles, and the people who have made her life difficult. After addressing everything that has led to her being who she is today, she takes on modern society – considering the world through the eyes of the next generation – and is appalled by what she sees. More poignant than hilarious, but compelling stuff nevertheless from this self-styled dark horse.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 26 Aug.
