Cheryl Martin – Who Wants to Live Forever

PUSH Festival 26-28 January 2017, HOME Manchester and then touring autumn 2017 and spring 2018

Who Wants To Live Forever? is about one woman’s life-long love for Billie Holiday’s music, for the stars, and for her lost baby brother. It’s about camping holidays and friendship; about learning how to sing so that you can sing to the stars; about loss and memory, and turning memory into myths of Amazon princesses sailing the skies.   About falling stars, and why we all love them.

Created through heightened, imagistic language in a non-linear, impressionistic monologue, Who Wants To Live Forever has been made by Writer/Performer Cheryl Martin + Director/Deviser Darren Pritchard.

Developed as a Divergency micro-commission with support from hÅb + STUN (Sustained Theatre Up North); supported through the Black Gold Arts Festival and an Artist Residency at Lawrence Batley Theatre Cellar.
