If I Say Jump
Common Chorus in association with Little Mighty
With skillful storytelling, playful comedy and an original soundtrack, this fast-paced new show charts a morally ambiguous quest for peace and wellbeing in a chaotic time.
Jenny’s a vicar. But she’s got problems. Her creepy ex-husband keeps sending her flowers – every day. The church hall is being renovated by a dodgy builder, who’s being investigated by the police. And her best friend Danny has turned up in the vestry with a gun.
Danny’s an addict. Nearly a year sober. But he’s still got anger issues. And he’s just had a fight with his best mate Benson. So when he turns to the church will Jenny be able to do the right thing? And does she even know what that is?
If I Say Jump confronts the unexpected consequences of the snap decisions we make when things get stressful. A contemporary western set in Barnsley, it’s for anyone who ever asked “why on earth did I just do that?”
