Soho Theatre meets... Sarah Kendall

Tue 7 March

We had a chat with Sarah Kendall ahead of her run here from Fri 10 Mar

Hi! Nice to meet you, what’s your name?
Knocks back a White Russian and smashes the glass against the wall

Where are you from?
Wouldn’t you like to know?
calls over the waiter Who do I have to fuck to get another White Russian? I LOVE WHITE RUSSIANS! I LOVE THEM!
If you MUST know I was born in Gibraltar but raised in Wealden. At the age of 15 I ran away to Hove to find my fortune. The rest, as they say, is history, baby.
lights a cigarillo

What brings you here?
I’m seeing Lucy Porter’s show.

Sorry, didn’t get you a drink, what would you like?

Some crisps or nuts?
NEITHER. As we used to say back when I was modelling to supplement my income as an ambulance driver: a minute on the lips is a lifetime on the hips!
falls off chair giggling uncontrollably

So, what’s so special about your show?
can’t hear you because all the laughter has induced a deafening fart

How did the idea of the show come about?
I’ll tell you how: grit and determination. I decided a long time ago that nothing- NOTHING- would stop Alexis Colby from getting everything she wants. Even if I have to step on a few faces!
Wait. What show?

Do you come here often?
Don’t be ridiculous. I only venture out to this shit hole once a year, and that’s to see my favourite raconteur: Lucy Beverley Martha Rihanna Porter.

Where are you going after here…
Where won’t I be going!
goes and shits in a bin

You can catch Sarah Kendall in Shaken from Fri 10 Mar until Sat 14 Mar
