A critically acclaimed play next at Ilkley Playhouse

A History of Falling Things, the touching and very funny play by the acclaimed playwright James Graham, opens on Monday 8 May at Ilkley Playhouse.

The play tells the story of Jacqui and Robin who are prisoners of their fear of falling things and are restricted to living indoors. When they meet online a relationship begins which forces them to confront their fear and discover what's real in their lives and what really matters. As the couple struggle to come to terms with how their online relationship will develop, the play explores themes of love, loss, family and the struggle to find meaning in a world that often feels chaotic and uncertain.

A History of Falling Things has been described by critics as "a thought-provoking and heartfelt exploration of mental illness and phobias". The play has been performed to critical acclaim across the UK and Europe, and is sure to resonate with audiences at Ilkley Playhouse.

A spokesperson from Ilkley Playhouse said: "The play promises to be a heart-warming and entertaining production that will leave you with a smile on your face and a warm feeling in your heart. Director Rachel Conyers has assembled a talented cast and crew for this production and promises to be a highlight of the Ilkley theatrical season."

The play will be performed in the intimate setting of the Wildman Studio, allowing the audience to fully immerse themselves in the story and runs until Saturday 13th May.
