    Standing Too Close On Our Own In the Dark is a half-gig, half-play, half-stand up set (yes, that’s three halves) which is rousing, affable, and uses stories based on real experiences in a journey which is as hopeful and vibrant as it is melancholic. In the romantic tragedy (or tragic romance, it’s up to you) an unnamed poet explores the bittersweet sensation of being lonely and in love, the damage that depression and anxiety has caused his psyche, and waxes lyrical about stolen bikes and ex-girlfriends’ dads. An uplifting, poetic gig-theatre event, the quiet rock and roll of Standing Too Close effervesces with the endearing awkwardness of early-20s social discomfort and revels in what it’s like to be in love with a girl and the world, while celebrating the acknowledgement of the universal weight we all have on our shoulders sometimes.

    Standing Too Close is a new play by recent Hull Drama graduate Jake Marsden which has helped define Just Club’s aims to make “happy-sad” productions which boldly and unashamedly make the unspoken conversational and relatable, with an air of mysticism; interchangeable and improvised elements make the show an exciting Frankenstein’s monster of dialogue and heart-rending ballad intent on bringing audiences to equal amounts elation and devastation.

    Further announcements will be made regarding the poets and performers who will be joining us for a happy-sad evening. Keep an eye out on the Just Club social media pages for more!
