In Sara Pascoe's film, Sara Pascoe Vs Monogamy, the award-winning comedian, writer and actor takes on history, heartache and her mother.
The pilot explores the concept of monogamy. Through Sara's world, created through live action and animation, we discover what makes us tick when it comes to matters of the heart and how you should never underestimate the allure of a saxophone.
The comedy short, produced by Stolen Picture and directed by the Blaine Brothers begins with the bold statement that Sara "doesn't think human beings are meant to be monogamous" and descends into bad best man speeches, bad sex Victorians and sperm wars. Sara delves into why "screwing around" isn't a male prerogative and why jazz makes her skin crawl.
