Stand Up Stand Up is a dark comedy, hilarious and heartbreaking in turns. A struggling comedian meets a bailiff - sounds like the start of a gag, but heralds an unlikely alliance that leads them both on a life-changing roller-coaster of an adventure neither would have ever expected. It is as if Can't Pay? We'll Take It Away! met with Live at the Apollo and spontaneously combusted.

Stand Up Stand Up marks the start of an exciting new partnership between the Theatre Royal Wakefield and its Creative Director John Godber and the newly formed Jim Cartwright Company. Cartwright is known for his internationally acclaimed work across stage and screen, including Road, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice (winner of both an Olivier Award and Evening Standard Best Comedy Award) and Two.

‘Cartwright is one of a small group of dramatists who can write plays that are
loved by people who don't necessarily like theatre.’ - THE GUARDIAN

Middlesbrough Theatre

Middlesbrough Theatre has quite a remarkable history. From it's conception in the late 1920's to its opening as the first architect-designed theatre to be built after the Second World War - it is the result of a 27-year dream and the unswerving dedication of theatre lovers in Middlesbrough.

Middlesbrough Theatre has an intimacy that belies its 486 seat capacity. A winning combination that has enabled the theatre to play host to a wide variety of performances from big bands and stand-up comedy to full-scale amateur musicals and Indian dance.

Middlesbrough Theatre continues to serve its community hosting performances from leading actors and renowned companies as well as by providing first class facilities to local amateur operatic and dramatic societies as well as young students from local dance schools and performing arts colleges.
