REVIEW – Gilded Balloon & PBJ Administration – Lynn Ferguson Storyland

RATING: 5/5

SCOTS actor, comic and playwright Lynn Ferguson makes a triumphant return to the Edinburgh Fringe in her new present Storyland.

Lynn is well-known for her voicing of brainy fictional hen Mac, within the 2000 cult-classic animated movie, Hen Run.

The youthful sister of chat present host Craig Ferguson, Lynn was a author on his iteration of the US’s traditional TV present, The Late Late Present.

Lynn Ferguson returns to the perimeter after 10 years. (C) Steve Ullathorne.

Now, again on the Fringe after ten years, she brings us Storyland. 

Regardless of dwelling in Los Angeles (which she stresses seems identical to Grangemouth when it rains), her Cumbernauld accent stays unchanged. 

Storyland has been impressed by a group of tales and occasions that Lynn weaves seamlessly collectively, skipping from one story to the subsequent with out fault or hesitation.

The best way the 57-year-old addresses a crowd is charming, together with her expertise within the business manifestly apparent from her consolation in entrance of an viewers.

She talks with them as if she’s in a café, chatting too personally over a espresso. Or in a bar over a pint. Even I felt as if we have been associates as soon as the hour was over. 

Even when we don’t realise it, nearly all of us have a story operating repeatedly.

At completely different factors in our life we develop into magnets for different individuals’s tales.

We is perhaps the starring position in our personal story, however we’re supporting roles, season regulars and extras in different individuals’s tales, with everybody’s tales interweaving with every others. 

Lynn tells us tales about her household, and she or he additionally tells us different individuals’s tales.

She reveals us that some are completely satisfied, some are inspirational, and a few are those that carry on enjoying, that have to be drowned out. 

Lynn is actual, uncooked and can make you snicker proper after crying about Piers Morgan. 

With a special movie star visitor each time, every present will likely be barely completely different, however each present will little doubt be as highly effective and thought frightening because the final.

Storyland will make you take a look at life in a special gentle. It’s a straightforward five-star, and one which I’d urge anybody to make the time to go and see.
