Multi award-winning comedian Sarah Kendall returns to Edinburgh with a spellbinding hour of storytelling. Paper Planes is the latest offering from the writer and star of the acclaimed Radio 4 series Australian Trilogy. Stories that are by turns moving, funny, and usually a bit depressing in places. Double Writers' Guild of Britain Award winner. Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee. BBC Audio Drama Award winner. 'Phenomenal storytelling, funny and soulful by turns, this is comedy that restores your sense of wonder' (Chortle.co.uk). ***** (Fest). ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). ***** (Skinny).
There are few comedians who can combine storytelling with comedy as well as Sarah Kendall. Previous years' shows have focused on her childhood, but this tale is of her current life - writer's block sapping her confidence, the dreamlike state of jet lag in LA and anxiety over things out of her control. From the elegiac to the earthy, she paints a picture in one perfect phrase, nails characters with pinpoint accuracy and will
still happily talk about taking a shit in the middle of the night.
