Morecambe, a northern seaside town, is struggling to survive just like its inhabitants. Mandy’s avoiding her Uncle Rick’s dodgy dance moves. Sarah’s watching a festival she’s never been to on the telly. Albert’s spending the little time he has left down the pub. And Stanley’s run away from school. But will anybody notice? Does anybody care?
Run Stanley Run is a new poetic play written and performed by Rowan Padmore, about bereavement, loss and loneliness.
Ages 12+. £10. In the BT Studio.
Performances on Thursday 20, Friday 21 & Saturday 22 June at 8pm. Part of our supported artist programme.
