Life Long


★★★★★ The Scotsman | ★★★★ The Herald

Does it seem to you that we have been married for over 50 years?
Can you remember what it was like before we were married?
Can you remember what our favourite song was?
Can you remember the first carpet we ever bought?
Would you like to dance?


In August 2008 we placed an advert in the newspaper. As a result of this advert we met Tillie and Ronnie Jeffrey – they have been married for 52 years. Together we spent time exploring their experience of spending their lives together.

Life Long tracks the significant moments they have lived through, their memories, stories and personal histories remembered and re-lived in this original piece of performance.

Life Long was performed at The Art Club, Glasgow as part of the Arches programme in February 2010.
