Its around a week and a half before the Breakfast Club opens at Taurus in Manchester and last night Rick Carter who is playing Andrew (the Athlete) was attacked near to where he lives.

His face is messed up with one of his eyes swollen and bruised to the point he cant open it, hopefully most of the swelling and bruising will be gone by opening night.

Rick has now had to cancel his TV interview with Channel M on the breakfast show on Monday and is gutted.Myself and Emma Willcox who is playing Alison (The Basket Case) will now do the interview

I feel so bad for him, people can be such idiots

I'm stunned and don't know what else to say - just look after him and concentrate on the show as a defiance to those F****** idiots!

Sending best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Even in the sleepy South West I nearly got mugged a couple of weeks ago and was only saved by a timely car passing and me deciding to run for it!

I hope all goes well- and good luck for the TV interview.

And from me too.

I was hoping to be able to come and see this but I've got to work in London that week. re: grrrrrrrrrrr One of my actors got attacked last night

I do like your idea of doing theatre on Canal Street and hope to get to the next one. And I still intend coming to see Dog Sees God at the Lowry.

I hope he has a speedy recovery.
Also there was a small mention of The Breakfast Club in my Uni newspaper.

I hope he gets better really quickly! =( xxx
I've somehow managed to live in London all my life and have never had even an attempted mugging, which is pretty damn surprising!

Thanks guys

He came to rehearsal today and did a great run through even with the mass swelling around his eye and cheekbone (he still cant open his eye properly but the swelling is starting to go down).One side of his face was very numb though so he went to the hospital after i ended rehearsals early for him and has been told he has a broken cheekbone...yikes

Yet the trooper he is he will still be doing the play

Really dreadful!

And beyond the physical damage, which I am glad to hear is at least mending, it may leave residual scars inside that will take longer to heal. So may he recover well in all respects very quickly.

Hes doing pretty good, he went to the hospital on weds and found out he also has a popped eye socket which is causing numbness in one side of his face.He has to go back on the morning of our opening night of the play for more x rays and then he will be called for the surgery not long after to sort it out.

Hes feeling fine though and back in rehearsals and looking forward to the play, his swelling has gone down so hes just bruised around his eye but we can cover that up x
