Staying Alive

By Kat Roberts

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

Mary had a son, now her son is dead, and that is all. But her friend Jenn is hosting a dinner party, just like before, a chance to catch up. No pressure. Nothing big. Just old friends. It would be great to see you. If you're free. If you're ready.

Darkly funny, and achingly tender, Kat Roberts' play Staying Alive is about the death of a child; an exploration of love, honesty, family and grief; about how in the wake of any irreparable loss, we find ways to connect and survive.

Kat Roberts' play Staying Alive was produced by Blackshaw Theatre Company and first performed at the Pleasance, London, in 2015.

‘There’s nothing worse than old friends... they always think they know exactly who you are.’

Press Quotes
