Great entertainment, a fun night out with something for everyone. Very enjoyable indeed! The hour went by all too quickly. Good clean humour with plenty of variety, a very amusing show that you could happily recommend to anyone. It was an uplifting experience with a great mix of very human and very relatable funny stories. A feel-good night of compelling upbeat stories.
The format was six different storytellers, each sharing a story live on stage, in just six minutes. The timing was tight and production slick. It was delightful. Each story was a surprise and that makes for the fun, not needing to know who is going to share, and what their story will be about. Trust they will be worth it. Each storyteller was well-selected and was on the ball with their storytelling. Very well organised with a great positive vibe in the room.
Presenter Lisa Evans has had a similar format with her Stories From the Heart shows for many years now, but this 2021 version has a twist. The audience was challenged by Evans to guess which story was made-up, with the big reveal at the end, like a classic Agatha Christie. All was not what it seemed, as each storyteller was very convincing. You really felt you were there with them, reliving the story which made it hard to guess which one was the red herring.
The audience empathised with each of the stories as they were vividly recounted by each of the storytellers, you could hear the gasps and chuckles in response to each story as it was shared. The reaction was warm and supportive with a lovely feel of human connection in the room through shared experiences, laughing at the humour in everyday mishaps. It felt good to feel bonded and connected by our own humanity and imperfections. It was heartening to laugh out loud at the things that can happen to all of us. I left feeling richer for the experience.
