Cheryl Martin presents
Who Wants To Live Forever
A jazz fantasy about loss, love and hope, set among the stars, combining science fact, real-world psychological observation, and autobiography, with lots and lots of live jazz vocals to ask why some stars shine more brightly than others, human and celestial, and why people love to watch them fall.
Created through heightened language in a nonlinear, impressionistic monologue, Who Wants To Live Forever has been made by writer and performer Cheryl Martin and director/deviser Darren Pritchard.
Developed as a Divergency micro-commission with support from hAb + STUN (Sustained Theatre Up North); supported through the Black Gold Arts Festival and an Artist Residency at Lawrence Batley Theatre Cellar.
