“It’s all fun and games ’til the balloon says hello”
The world seems a cold place after the death of her father, but things take a strange turn when Tess receives a special birthday present. Don’t Let Me Down is an exploration of childhood, laughter, and let downs through the eyes of a child and her balloon. Fusing deadpan comedy, raw honesty and a wry writing style, this is a modern day fairytale where things are not quite as they seem.
Don’t Let Me Down is a sad comedy written and produced by Andy Goddard. It stars BAFTA winner Ciara Baxendale (Mad Fat Diary, Harriet’s Army). It is directed by Freyja Winterson (Yet Another Carnival, I’m Just Here To Buy Soy Sauce), features music by Odinn Orn Hilmarson (Valkyrie, Hector Vs. The Future), and design from Molly Beth Morossa (Dr. Carnesky’s Incredible Bleeding Woman, Greywing House).
Andy Goddard is a Producer/Director of hit podcast sitcoms Wooden Overcoats (Prix Europa nominee, iTunes Best of 2015) and Hector Vs. The Future (Audiodrama library show of the year 2016). Don’t Let Me Down is his playwriting debut.
