Reasons To Stay Alive

Reasons To Stay Alive


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.

Through words, movement and music, this theatrical adaptation of Matt Haig’s frank and funny bestseller – imagined for the stage and directed by Jonathan Watkins (1984: A Ballet) – celebrates what it means to be alive.

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