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.

Cheryl Martin is a unique voice in today’s theatre, both in her own performances and in the work she makes with others as a director. In both kinds of work, she examines experiences that most people are afraid to talk about, but approaches them with a humour, warmth, and raw honesty that draws audiences in and allows them to explore with her, fearlessly.

“Cheryl Martin’s delightful and sometimes disturbing mix of memory, anecdote, music and imagination is a performance gem. Audiences will warm immensely to her performance, and be taken to the stars by her words.: John McGrath MIF

“Images and concepts are layered one over the other to draw vivid parallels between ourselves, our idols and the universe in which we live.” Quiet Man Dave
