About What Ever Happened to Baby Jane McDonald?
A new and original show celebrating an ex-copper’s 20-year obsession with Wakefield’s number one export, the legendary JANE MCDONALD, cruises into this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Welcome to the inaugural meeting of the self-help group ‘Jane McDonald Anonymous’. Through audio entries, soul-searching and group participation, Grant McLachlan, the newly-elected leader of an elite group of Jane superfans called the ‘Cruisettes’, will guide you through your 8-step journey, from admitting to celebrating your obsession with everything that is Jane McDonald.
Former Metropolitan Police detective turned primary teacher Grant McLachlan devised the show in November 2017 after he was filmed at his school for the Channel 5 show ‘Jane & Friends’. Thanks to her recent award-winning ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ series, she is at the top of her career, so this show will speak to anyone who feels that they need a bit of showtune sparkle, camp banter and Jane McDonald in their lives – and frankly, who doesn’t?
Speaking about the show, Grant McLachlan says, ‘I have always been in love with Jane, so when I saw the impact she had on my class when she surprised us at school, I thought – there is a fun and fabulous Edinburgh Fringe show right here just bursting to put on a feather boa and tell its story!’
Grant McLachlan is a lifelong member of the Jane McDonald fan club and is an out-and-proud superfan. This is his debut solo show, but he has performed at the Fringe in the London Gay Men’s Chorus productions ‘Oklahomo’ (2009), ‘Thoroughly Modern Willie’ (2010) and ‘Hi-De-Homo’ (2011).
‘I mean, I’ve been cruising many many times, but this is the biggest thing I’ve ever seen’ Jane McDonald, 2017.
