Act Your Age – Creative Expression Showcase

Images from the entertainment production created by Joyce Doolittle and Philip McCoy, retired faculty members from the UCalgary Drama Department as performed at the Garrison Green Seniors Community Theatre on October 15, 2013.

The work consists of readings from plays portraying older people and dealing with their relationships with each other and also with younger generations.  The two performers also add comments and remarks based on their own experiences of aging.  The presentation explores the contrasts between the traditional roles that older people are expected to play, and the realities of old age in the 20th and 21st centuries.
