by Jim Cartwright acclaimed writer of Road and Two.
Stand Up Stand Up is a dark comedy, hilarious and heartbreaking in turns. Struggling comedian, Colin (Chris Hannon) meets burly bailiff, Biff (Andrew Westfield) who has secret show business dreams. They form an unlikely alliance that leads them on a life changing roller coaster of an adventure neither was quite prepared for.
Expect hilarious sequences in which passages from Shakespeare are interpreted in the styles of The Goon Show, Monty Python and Benny Hill.
