Matt Haig

What does it mean to truly feel alive?

An English Touring Theatre and Sheffield Theatres co-production

Imagined for the stage by Jonathan Watkins
Adapted by April de Angelis

At 24 Matt’s world collapsed and he could see no way to go on.

This is his story of a journey through crisis, a joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and triumphing over illness.

Matt Haig’s frank and funny international bestseller is brought to the stage by the award-winning Jonathan Watkins (Northern Ballet’s 1984) and 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” Matt Haig

Praise for the book:

“Matt Haig is astounding” Stephen Fry

“Brings a difficult and sensitive subject out of the darkness and into the light” Michael Palin

“A small masterpiece that might even save lives” Joanna Lumley
