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.
'This was nail-biting stuff!'
'You must not miss this production.'
'Expert direction with attention to the smallest of details.'
'The outstanding skill of each actress took us through a roller coaster of emotions.'
'An intimate, touching and strong production.'
'Three equally strong performances...keeping us engaged at all times'
'Director John Patterson has achieved an incredible precision.'
