Sarah Kendall performs her award-winning live solo show Shaken, a story about the art of storytelling and a teenager's desire to be popular.
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 3: Shaken
"This show is a story, and it's a big story. But it actually starts in one of my therapy sessions..."
In 1989, 13 and unpopular, Sarah misses the school bus. This prompts her to tell a lie and suddenly she finds herself the focal point of the entire community.
This show is as much about the art of storytelling as it is about a teenager's want to be popular. Sarah examines why stories are so important to her and she leaves us with a message from Ferris Bueller:
"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and move around once in a while, you could miss it"
