Reasons To Stay Alive

By Matt Haig
Imagined for the stage by Jonathan Watkins
Text written by April de Angelis

At 24 Matt’s world collapsed under the weight of depression. This is the true story of his journey out of crisis; a profoundly uplifting exploration of living and loving better. The first theatrical adaptation of Matt Haig’s frank and funny bestseller. This play with music and movement, imagined for the stage by Jonathan Watkins, celebrates what it means to be alive.

“It’s wonderful to see a book take on other life forms, especially a form as exciting and radically different as this one. I think this production will provide a fascinating way to look at depression and mental health.” Matt Haig
