Aging is Not for Sissies – * Revisited *

Produced by Pratibha Eastwood

Directed by Joyce Maltby

This touching and funny performance – based on intimate cross-cultural stories of women & men from around the world aged 60-100 – challenging the myth that older adults are “over the hill with one foot in the grave.” In self-revealing monologues, the characters bare all, contradicting the view that older adults are invisible, untouchable and boring. Through their stories and songs, we meet real men & women with a sense of humor and a deep passion for life.
