“Yana Alana is the fabulous character creation of Sarah Ward (Sista She) that’s a cross between Snow White on steroids and a dominatrix. The humour is side-splittingly funny, often delivered through poetry and song. It’s got bite and is ever so naughty. You haven’t lived till you’ve seen one of Yana’s shows.”
