Joseph Carter And Chloe Proctor / #BeMoreMartyn: The Boy With The Deirdre Tattoo

Following 2017 and 2018’s sell out performances and rave reviews of HOPE THEATRE COMPANY’S verbatim piece, #BEMOREMARTYN: THE BOY WITH THE DEIRDRE TATTOO tours nationally opening at The Pleasance Theatre before going to Brighton Fringe, Newcastle Live Theatre, Sheffield Theatres and The Lowry.

Joseph Carter and Chloe Proctor perform as part of the ensemble playing Martyn’s closest friends.

#BeMoreMartyn trended on Twitter in the hours after the announcement of Martyn Hett’s death in the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing – 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.

Directed by Adam Zane and written by Adam Zane and Mike Lee, this 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
