IT’S NOT OVER YET

“I said I’d never make a show about having cancer. This is a show about having cancer. Two years ago, aged 30, I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. This is part of the story, but It’s Not Over Yet.

Cultured Mongrel Presents

It's Not Over Yet

by Emma Jayne Park

World premiere

Using movement and text Emma Jayne Park invites you to share part of her life only those closest to her witnessed; a journey of remembering, evaluating our life choices and exploring why they even matter. It’s personal, it’s funny, it’s angry in places but above all it’s honest. Everyone has a cancer story, this is hers.     

During Emma’s treatment and remission, she was deeply affected by being unable to access live performance. It’s Not Over Yet is the first stage in developing quality theatre work that can be reshaped into intimate home-based performances considering the specific needs of people who are house bound for medical reasons.  Working in partnership with The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival, these short works will engage with a variety of themes and art forms to offer those who cannot attend the theatre the same privilege as our visiting audiences.
