Matt Haig and Susan Calman in conversation

To coincide with its production of Matt Haig’s bestseller Reasons to Stay Alive with English Touring Theatre in autumn 2019, Sheffield Theatres hosted a free conversation between Matt Haig and comedian Susan Calman. The author and comedian reflected on the ways the arts give us ‘reasons to stay alive’ – drawing from great songs, seminal books, groundbreaking theatre and legendary comedy, and celebrating the art that has kept people going in their darkest hours. See their conversation in the video below.
