Mark Caven : Jump, Darling

Posted on March 5, 2021 at 9:04 am

Mark Caven is playing Rene in Phil Connell’s stunning debut Feature, ‘JUMP, DARLING’.

Russell aka ‘Fishy Falters’ (Thomas Duplessie), a struggling actor turned rookie drag queen is approaching 30 and lost with what to do with his life. Seeking answers, he escapes to the country for some soul searching, moving in with his Grandma, Margaret (Cloris Leachman). Yet he finds his usually quick witted, sardonic Grandma is at her own crossroads; in steep decline, battling a faltering mind and facing her greatest fear – the local nursing home.

Featuring Thomas Duplessie, Linda Kash and Jayne Eastwood, with cameos from well-known drag queens, ‘Jump, Darling’ is the perfect swansong to the late, Hollywood icon Cloris Leachman, who at 94 years old, passed away last month.

Don’t miss Mark alongside Cloris’s final starring role in this wonderful, heart-wrenching and heart-warming film…
