CAN'T STAND UP FOR FALLING DOWN
by Richard Cameron
Can't Stand Up For Falling Down played to packed houses at the New Wimbledon Studio Theatre from 7th – 11th July 2015.
The play consists of three apparently separate but ultimately intertwined monologues. Lynette, Jodie and Ruby are young women in a small Yorkshire town whose lives cross paths through encounters with a brutal bully named Royce. The play brings to life the suffocating fear of domestic violence in a small town. Themes of intimidation, fear, desperation, single-parenthood, loss, memory, hope and togetherness resonate throughout the piece. It is an intimate, physical and emotionally charged piece of theatre.
Following the success at Wimbledon, we are currently in negotiations to revive this production Off Broadway in 2018.
