ED FRINGE REVIEW Sarah Keyworth, Pacific

★ ★ ★ ★

A passionate, powerful and poignant tale about strength and masculinity delivered beautifully by one of the most exciting new voices in comedy.

Nominated last year for Best Newcomer, Sarah Keyworth returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with a new haircut - which I only mention because she does. Shorter than it's ever been, it raises further questions for her about gender roles, a theme carried over from her debut but with extra intelligence, relevancy and poignancy.

She is by her own admission a small woman with the appearance of a teenage boy wanting to be a "big boy". A recent break-in at the flat she shares with her girlfriend who was in on her own at the time, left Sarah feeling feeling guilty and feeling like she should have been there to protect her.
