What is it?
Catch the Penny Dreadful‘s How to be Immortal at Jacksons Lane in North London on 4th February. Live music, dead people, love and DNA all intertwine in this twisted new play about what death leaves behind.
Henrietta Lacks died in West Virginia in 1951, but her cells are still alive, dividing endlessly in laboratories all over the world. It’s taken Deborah years to come to terms with her mother’s death. Now she’s got to deal with her immortality.
Rosa’s fallen in love with Mick the decorator. She plays cello, he plays squeezebox; an unlikely combination but they sound good together. Trouble is she’s pregnant and he’s about to die.
How to be Immortal was developed with The Lowry and West Yorkshire Playhouse; in association with Harrogate Theatre, The Albany and Jacksons Lane.
