Sarah Cameron-West will have you howling from her first line until the very end. An incredibly talented performer and I’d recommend watching this show before she becomes a global superstar (which seems a guarantee to me). Also loved the underlying messaging of the show which tackles the stigmas around female rage.

I was cackling from the get go. From Sarah Cameron-West’s hilarious comic timing and brilliant one liners to her ability to hold such intense eye contact with audience members was genius. She is absolutely phenomenal and I want a whole series please.

What a great show. Captivated from the first minute. It’s funny, sad, tragic all at the same time. The writing is so clever that the audience doesn’t know whether to sympathize or feel indignant for Sarah. Great acting performance with the most wonderful range of facial expressions!

Gregor Haddow 104 days ago

This is a fantastic performance, a funny and scarily relatable story brought to vivid life by the amazing acting skills and incredible facial expressions of a talented performer. She seems able to go through the entire range of human emotions in a single sentence.
The whole audience were carried along with her and were totally invested. I loved it!

We absolutely loved this show. Didn’t know what to expect but it was clever, funny and very entertaining. Sarah is a revelation and if you have a spare £10 to spare it will be one one the best you will spend. Get yourself to “Karen”!

I created an account with the fringe, just to leave a review on this amazing show! I’m not one for theatre or comedy shows normally, but Karen intrigued me. After the first couple of minutes I was hooked and completely fell for the story. The acting was just amazing with so many laughs that I had tears in my eyes. This is a must watch and I’m so glad I was at the first show at the fringe. MUST WATCH!!!!!!!

Incredible. Before this I’d seen 21 shows in the festival including many of the most prominent names here and I’d put this in the top three. A great story, really funny and an intimate venue shows how good a performer she is. Would highly recommend.
