Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatre review: Sunny Runny Runcorn, reviewed by The Scotsman’s Alison Kerr

★★

One rather hyper-active storyteller brings a range of characters energetically to life in this explicit and angry monologue about people in the northern town known as the chav capital. As our actor morphs from one character into another, it’s often difficult to follow what’s happening but the rage is palpable especially when he’s portraying mistreated gay characters. The improvised personal greetings to individual audience members – “Nobody puts Baby in the corner,” he says when a cute young man goes to sit near the back – is as entertaining as the performance itself.
