Participants in Lifestages: Recollections group workshops learn playwriting techniques and dramatize their experiences into original scripts. Selections are read aloud by professional actors at the end of the series.
Lifestages creates grassroots theatre from the lives of older individuals. The program pairs seniors, with a lifetime of stories to tell, with actor/writers eager for material to dramatize. The writers interview the storytellers and then shape their wisdom and memories into dramatic vignettes, which are performed by theatre artists in senior residences and community venues.
Recollections writing workshops help groups of seniors craft their life experiences into theatre; professional actors perform scripts at the end of the program. Reflections brings performances of the seniors’ writing to community sites and local schools, bringing history to life for younger generations.
