Raising funds for the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation A professional world premiere from Bruntwood Prize Winner, Anna Jordan. MAP Rep’s first full show proves that Manchester Actors’ Platform and 53two are continuing to tackle the bigger subjects and create innovative and groundbreaking theatre. What has been seen cannot be unseen. Six eyewitnesses to a gruesome terrorist attack in broad daylight. Their lives are changed irrevocably, but how? Rita cannot hold her son. Tony does jigsaw puzzles and counts his wife’s breaths. Elliot must face up to who he really is. Farrah is forced to reconnect with a past long forgotten. Annie starts to feel again. And Stefan feels nothing. 'Stay Happy Keep Smiling’ is a fictionalised exploration of the lives of ordinary people following an extraordinary event. Jordan's writing is punchy and intensely truthful, asking difficult questions on how we deal with an all too common occurrence in the 21st century world: terrorism: It's aftermath, what effects it has and the ripples beyond the event into our own worlds. A production brought to you by newly formed MAP Repertory company. Running 17-21 October 7:30pm Tix: £7 online/£8 door www.53two.com/stayhappy PRESS NIGHT: Tues 17th October JOURNALISTS AND REVIEWERS WISHING TO ATTEND THE PERFORMANCE ARE INVITED TO REGISTER THEIR INTEREST BY EMAILING beth@53two.com FURTHER INFORMATION/ INTERVIEW/ PHOTOGRAPHY REQUESTS INCLUDING AT 53TWO AHEAD OF THE EVENT: simon@53two.com 07432 198 724

Well done and a huge THANK YOU to our friend and trustee Jonathan Ford who has completed the daunting Lakes in a Day challenge to raise money for us. It's not too late to Sponsor Jonathan. You can read about his grueling adventure in his own words:. The View From The Back - by Jonathan Ford. When I was looking for a new challenge late last year I decided to do the Lakes in A Day – a 50 mile off road run that starts in Caldbeck in the far north and ends in Cartmel in the far south. The route takes in more than a few mountain summits including Blencathra, Clough Head, Helvellyn and the Fairfield Horseshoe. You could say it’s a bit hilly. I first became aware of the event last year when I’d gone for a night run with the kids over Claife Heights. As we paddled across Windermere we could see a line of twinkling lights on the Fairfield Horseshoe. A bit later we came across a couple blokes obviously in some sort of race. They looked absolutely knackered. They told us what they were doing and that they were headed to Cartmel some 20 miles away. “Nearly there…” they gasped. We ran off thinking what a disappointment they were in for but we didn’t have the heart to tell them. Something had piqued my interest though and I chatted with my friend Danabout the possibility of doing it together. Dan is a decent marathon runner and he was keen on the idea of something a bit different. I started to have second thoughts though on the amount of training I would have to do. Just before Christmas I decided to go for a run to make up my mind. I heard the sound of a bike behind me and turned around to see a friend who had done the Lakeland 100 mile race earlier that year. Of course, he thought it sounded like a great idea... if a little easy. The decision was made. The training for the event was great. I love running in the Lakes and had loads of fun planning ‘bus stop’ runs where I’d get a bus to somewhere remote and run back to the caravan in Bowness. On the day of the race we were up at 4.00am to get ourselves on the coach from Cartmel to the start at Caldbeck. The coach was full of quiet chatter about the route and the weather. In the last few years the race has enjoyed fantastic weather but the forecast for this year was grim. Rain and wind were likely and walking ‘arduous’. We also made a decision about our route off Blencathra. The race gave you two choices - down the scary Halls Fell or down the more sedate Blease Fell - about 2 miles further in distance. A lady we spoke to had timed both routes and thought Blease Fell was actually a bit quicker. I’d been down Halls Fell on...

Lakes in a Day Fundraiser: Jonathan Ford Jonathan has been a trustee of the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation for a long time (9 years - time flies). The charity was set up by Tim’s Mum and Dad - Colin and Wendy - following the bombing of Warrington almost 25 years ago. Having seen first hand what a difference they make to people lives it is something very close to my heart. The charity aims to help people think for themselves so they don’t become radicalised. And in the terrible times when atrocities happen - like the recent Manchester bomb - they play an integral part of helping the victims (however affected) make sense of what has happened and help them to start rebuilding their lives. Sadly, the work of the charity has never been more necessary. So, I’m asking for your help! In October Jonathan will be running the Lakes in a Day. It’s a 50-mile ultra marathon which kindly takes in 4000m of brutal climbs. Jonathan says: "If you could find a few bob to sponsor me then I’m sure it’ll make the miles more endurable knowing it’s helping such a good cause."
