I stand before you as a living momento mori. I am acutely aware that I will die and I am also aware that you will die. That’s hardly news, but quite possibly you’ve managed to ignore it until now.
In May 2017 I received a terminal cancer diagnosis. Not Long Now is my response to that diagnosis and the drastic shortening of my life expectancy. Not Long Now is a one-man show, which uses poetry, story-telling, puppetry and video, to address one basic question: given we are all going to die, how then shall we live?
Not Long Now had its premiere at Shilbottle Community Hall, Shilbottle, Northumberland on 30th November 2018. There will be a video of the performance available soon.
