“The Experience of Being” – Blackwater Valley Fit-Up Theatre Festival 2020.

Age…it’s just something that creeps up on us……or is it!

Sat 1st February 2020   9.15pm to 10.15

Week 2. Blackwater Valley Fit-up Theatre Festival 2020 presents “The Experience of Being”
Double Bill with (“Maura Laverty This Was Your Life”)

How many times does it take for people not to see you before you start feeling invisible?   How many times before you believe it too?
On her 60th birthday Cathy should be celebrating but it rapidly goes downhill.  “In the shop they didn’t see me.  They saw a warm cardigan and a sensible shoes woman. An insignificant woman”.

Age is something that creeps up on us.  We generally don’t give it much thought, so it comes as a bit of a shock when we suddenly arrive
at 60.   Dwindling power in all its forms of course is a major issue, but ageing needs to be ‘re framed’ as simply another stage of life that we can manage positively.    This play is an antidote, a reaction, a ‘howl’ against the stereotype of what an ‘older’ person is capable of doing physically, mentally and emotionally.  Lets face it we are  all ageing, so let’s prepare for it.
