Description

A Mighty Fall from Grace follows the life of a Bradford Bulls fan, who over several years watches his club deteriorate on and off the field and whose mental health deteriorates throughout as a result. This hard-hitting piece tackles subjects of depression and schizophrenia in a relatable way, with light-hearted, comedic moments throughout. This one-hander won best play at a showcase event in Salford in 2019, before being performed at the Bradford Fringe Festival in the same year.

Jake Thompson’s debut play is gritty, funny and thought provoking. The transitions flow and are a dream to watch. The energy is captivating and Jake carries the audience from start to finish amazingly. The play deals with themes of mental health issues, we watch as the protagonist experiences the highs and lows of the Bradford Bulls and as the bulls experience highs so does he but as they experience lows, well, as does he. However the serious themes are not dealt with condescendingly but poignantly and as an audience we feel for the character without pitying them which is always great. Well done Jake, this is a must see!
