Play explores CFS in marriage

Monday 24 August 2009

Standing Still StandingAudrey Howell reports on Standing Still Standing, a new play by Melissa Leilani Larson in which the main theme is CFS:

Many people go through life wishing they had enough time in the day to do the things they need to before it’s time for bed. But for some, bedtime comes sooner and more often than normal, making it difficult to do anything at all.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is the theme behind the new play "Standing Still Standing," a dramatic production by Bluelight Stage and Leilani Productions, in association with New Play Project. Directed by Landon Wheeler on the stage of the Provo Theatre, it is a comedic play depicting the struggle many people go through in their fight to stay awake on a daily basis.

"This is very loosely based on a true story," said playwright Melissa Leilani Larson. "I was just really intrigued by what I thought was just a really enduring love story."

You can read the rest of the article here.

The play itself has a web page with reviews, profiles on the cast members etc.
