OPENING TONIGHT:  We are so pleased to have CHLOE PROCTOR and JOSEPH CARTER perform in Hope Theatre Company’s  #BEMOREMARTYN The Boy with the Deidre Tattoo, opening tonight at Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester before moving on to the Brighton Fringe and then Southwark Playhouse.

After sell out performances in 2017, Hope Theatre Company return to celebrate the life of Martyn Hett on the first anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing.

#BeMoreMartyn trended on Twitter in the hours after the announcement of Martyn’s death – but what does it mean?

Hope Theatre Company asked eight of Martyn’s closest friends and created a unique piece of verbatim theatre using their words. They give a remarkable insight into the life of an extraordinary young man, who transformed each and every one of them.

Martyn’s friends take us on a journey from the cobbles of Canal Street to his legendary Eurovision parties, celebrating

Coronation Street, Mariah Carey and Michelle McManus along the way.

Martyn’s outrageous and hilarious take on popular culture is brought to life on stage including his infamous Deirdre Barlow tattoo and the YouTube sensation that is The Audrey Roberts Noise.

This new play celebrates the power of friendship and encourages audiences to live life to the full, to be proud of who you are and to #BeMoreMartyn.
