Cabaret: Sally Wyatt

Sally Wyatt is a stand up comedian, writer performance poet and character actor. She writes short plays and performance pieces based around the people often overlooked in society.

She is particularly passionate around public attitudes to mental health and the concept of social norms. Sally believes that there are two types of people in the world the mentally ill and those awaiting diagnosis. She uses observations from her experiences of working in the mental health field and of having Bi-polar herself .

Her work tends to be darkly comical and centres around engaging the audience to see the world through the character’s sometimes warped reality and through humour to try to challenge people’s perspective of normality .
