Can't Stand Up For Falling Down

  • Theatre N16 77 Bedford Hill London SW12 9HD United Kingdom (map)

MAR 6 - MAR 17

Sunday - Thursday, 7.15pm, 70 mins



Richard Cameron’s Can’t Stand Up for Falling Down plays at Theatre N16 this March, in a transfer from Cambridge from producer Lily Staff starring Abi Taylor Jones, Ellie Nunn and Venice van Someren.

Can’t Stand Up for Falling Down follows the lives of three South-Yorkshire women and their tales of Royce Boland, a man who has a profound and devastating effect on all of their lives. In a near-lyrical exploration of women, love and survival, this performance offers a striking celebration of storytelling and solidarity through the often overlooked medium of monologues, allowing for a powerful and personal production. An immediate hit when it premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2011, this story of insecurity, family and domestic abuse unfolds as crimes of the past and present finally collide.

Starring in Can’t Stand Up for Falling Down are Abi Taylor Jones (Danny The Champion of the World, Brentwood Theatre; Game Over, High Tide Festival), Ellie Nunn (Desperate Measures, Jermyn Street Theatre; Shakespeare in Love, Noel Coward Theatre) and Venice van Someren (Punk Rock and Therese Raquin, Drama Centre).
