Sarah Kendall: Australian Trilogy


More Information


United Kingdom




Multi-award winning storyteller Sarah Kendall brings her critically acclaimed trilogy of funny and moving, live shows to Radio 4. Taking her audience on a trip, Sarah gives a unique snapshot of small-town life in Australia in the early nineties. At a time when most people were seeing Australians through the filter of 'Home and Away' and 'Neighbours', Sarah's shows present a darker underbelly to the stereotype of the sun-loving, happy-go-lucky Aussie teenager. Comedic and tragic in equal measure, Sarah's tales of her teenage life blend intricate narratives with a cast of memorable characters, bringing events to life in front of your very ears. Episode 2: Touchdown "This show is a story, and our story starts at the end. My parents came to see one of my shows, and I would end this particular show by telling a story about the time I swore at a teacher..." Starting with a short routine from her comedy club set, Sarah admits that like with most stand-up routines, it had a punchline manufactured for the sake of a joke. Her mum challenges her to tell everyone what really happened the day she swore at that teacher and the result is this show. Denied the quick fix of a fabricated punchline it is transformed into a full, honest, coming-of-age story that explores the clumsiness of adolescents, their awkward relationships, and painful need for friendship and love. *Contains strong language Written and performed by Sarah Kendall Producer - Carl Cooper Production Coordinator - Emily Hallett This is a BBC Studios Production.
