Hanging In There


Saturday 22 April at 7:30pm


HANGING IN THERE

The movie that could save your life
 
A comedy about testicular cancer made in the Midlands with a mainly local cast.

Jack Jackson works in computers and likes football, golf and Tuesday evenings in the pub with his mates. He’s married to Biology teacher Anna. They’re happy. Then Jack discovers a lump on his testicle. Within a few days he is hearing the word ‘Cancer’ from a consultant and his once-cosy life is in turmoil. Very soon, he finds himself feeling isolated and incomplete; HANGING IN THERE tells the story of his difficult journey to re-connection and wholeness.
And it’s a comedy … HANGING IN THERE was originally written as a play by Geoff Saunders - a teacher, playwright and testicular cancer survivor - partly as a way of coming to terms with this life-changing event. The play was first staged at the Loft Theatre in 2005 and was directed by Darren Scott, who then staged another very successful run at the Criterion Theatre the following year.
In 2014, Geoff and Darren reunited to embark on a journey to transform the play into a film, and with the help of local Warwickshire actors and crew, and the goodwill of hundreds of people and businesses, the film is now being shown around the country. This will be the first showing of the film in the county.
Stars Chris Hudson and Elizabeth Joyce Morris along with some familiar Talisman Theatre faces: Karen Scott (credited under her professional stage name Imogen Archer), Ruth Herd and Craig Shelton.
There will be a Q&A session held after the screening for those interested in knowing how this film was made.
HANGING IN THERE supports Orchid: Fighting Male Cancer, a charity funding research into male cancers.
