Stanley

About the show

Stanley by Junk Theatre is inspired by true events and real people. This new piece of writing follows neurotic and generally afraid Stanley Watts, a Radio DJ sent by the BBC to be the sole media representative on the Falkland Islands.

When Port Stanley, where he lives, is invaded by the Argentinian military, Stanley's radio station becomes the soul point of communication between the British government and the island troops. Stanley must overcome his biggest obstacle, himself, in order to try and support the islands he has (very slowly) come to love.

About the company

A group of twenty-somethings that formed at uni hoping to make it in the creative arts, we aim to make work that is funny, honest and at times joyfully neurotic.

We hope our shows provide a cushion for adulthood’s winding blows and give a nod to those also navigating life by a series of what feel like absolute stabs in the dark.
