Martha

Macrobert Arts Centre
Sat 22 Sep, 2pm
For ages 4+

Who is Martha? 
 
Martha lives by the sea… Martha lives alone… Martha doesn’t need anyone… 
She is stubborn, eccentric and highly independent. 
 
Who are Martha’s friends? 
 
Not her next door neighbour. Not her helpful postman. Nor her secret admirer from across the bay. 
One day Martha has an unexpected visitor and her life will never be the same again.

A boy on the run. A listening crow. A man who wants to be lost. The story of two people struggling; a boy and a man, told through poetry and stark reality in text, film and soundscape. As our world becomes more disparate and broken, it questions if our children and young people are being systematically and ideologically let down by society.
