FOREVERLAND Main artwork image by Sam Dodson, features a collage of scientific imagery, anatomy drawings, objects and different people on a colourful background.

“This is for her, really.
She’s the one we’re doing this for”

In the very near future, Alice and Jay decide to undergo a medical procedure which will change their lives forever.

They’re optimistic, hoping the decision will lead to perfect careers, the perfect relationship, and most of all, a perfect family.

Life’s good. And you can’t get enough of a good thing, right?

FOREVERLAND is a gripping drama about the future of biotechnology, which asks what makes a good life, for this generation and the next. 

It was shortlisted for The Papatango Prize in 2021 and is by Emma Hemingford, whose previous play Flinch received multiple four-star reviews. 

This is FOREVERLAND‘s premiere production.

“A taut, emotionally driven, thought-provoking play from a writer who possesses original dramatic vision” Michael Billington
