CAN’T STAND UP IN SALFORD
 

Star date: 14th May 2012

UNHOLY MESS AT STUDIO SALFORD

Can't Stand Up For Falling Down
Kings Arms
Wednesday 16- Friday 19th May £7/£5

This week, the largely Salford based Unholy Mess Theatre has teamed up with House of Orphans to present Can't Stand Up For Falling Down at Studio Salford within the Kings Arms pub.

The play, a favourite at the Edinburgh Fringe, centres on three women in the 1960s and their stories of birth, death, marriage and motherhood…

Full details here…


The play, Can't Stand Up For Falling Down, sounds like a hilarious comedy but it's actually quite the opposite, focussing on the oppression of women, as lived through the interwoven lives of Lynette, Jodie and Ruby and their relationship with the bullying and abusive Royce.

Set against the backdrop of women's liberation movement of the sixties and based in a south Yorkshire town, the trio tell their stories of birth, death, marriage and motherhood as the play aims to "give a voice to women who feel forced into silence by fear" while exploring a subject which rarely gets aired.

With an all female cast and director, Can't Stand Up For Falling Down is produced and presented by two in-house Studio Salford companies, Unholy Mess Theatre and House of Orphans. It's written by Richard Cameron, directed by Lucy Allan and stars Edwina Lea (Jodie), Lucia Cox (Ruby) and Esther Dix (Lynette).

AS HOMELESS SALFORD MAN DIES UNCLE ASKS WHY IT’S NOT BEING REPORTED

'FOR ME, IT'S ALL BEING COVERED UP...'

Last Friday, a homeless man from Salford sadly died after living on the streets in Manchester city centre; the latest, many believe, in a spate of such incidents.

Now his uncle wants to know why his nephew's death was not reported and says "This is probably going on in every big city in the country, and for me it is just being covered up..."
