Sarah Keyworth: Dark Horse - Soho Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FOLLOWING her success at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Nominee, Sarah Keyworth is bringing her comedy Dark Horse to Soho Theatre – from January 28 to February 2, 2019.

Nottingham-born Keyworth also won the Herald Angels Award 2018 for Dark Horse, a show about sexuality and identity.

Sarah is a small girl who works as a nanny for an even smaller girl. In this hour of honest hilarity, Sarah questions how this girl is being raised, and reflects upon her own upbringing. Think Girls Just Wanna Have Fun but British, deadpan and in no way similar…

Sarah Keyworth takes the audience on a semi-autobiographical tale about discovering her own sexuality and gender identity – with revelations that include how being a lesbian doesn’t mean you want to be a man, how you can look like Czech footballer Pavel Nedvěd and still be feminine, and how having the same bits as your partner can only be a good thing.

She ponders how her gender identity at a young age may have been skewed by the judgement of others and asks, does this little girl stand a chance in today’s society? She does with Sarah by her side.

Described as a refreshingly insightful journey about expectations, gender and self-acceptance, Dark Horse is both thought-provoking and entertaining.
