5 Good Reasons to See Simon Godfrey – Sauce

1. In the show, two of the minor characters are yachts. If I was only playing one yacht, I’d understand if people were like, “Just one? I could see that anywhere.” But two… Strap yourselves in, sailors.

2. Sauce is a deeply personal show about a boy who doesn’t like tomato sauce. Oh the torment, discrimination and scorn we non-sauce-eaters suffer. When I was a child, I was ejected from every school sausage sizzle. I’m convinced they thought something was wrong with me, (I know you’re thinking there is), and that my sauce refusal was a form of anarchism.

3. What’s with the lack of catapults in modern comedy? It’s a question I hear all the time and a problem rectified by my heavy use of trebuchets in the show.

4. To write Sauce, I used the tried and tested equation: underdog + geopolitics + silly voices(rudimentary impression of Vladimir Putin) x sausages2 = comedy.

5. It’s a one-person show with 30 and a bit characters, revenge, intrigue, milk bars a lot of sauce. And, if I can remember it all, it should be a lot of fun.
