Age and Stage

Drama workshops for 60+ and their carers

Supported by the Corra Foundation, 'Age & Stage' Project engages elderly people and their carers who experience loneliness and isolation. Active Inquiry, who specialise in producing devised plays, deliver drama workshops and guide project participants in telling and sharing their stories. 

As part of the Just Festival programme, we jointly presented the production of 'Happy Birthday?' reflecting on mental health services provision for the elderly. We are now inviting the elderly and their carers to join our drama workshops hosted at the Thistle Foundation’s Centre of Wellbeing in Craigmillar (13 Queen's Walk, Edinburgh EH16 4EA).  

We will be meeting on a weekly basis on every Tuesday between 12th February and 26th March 2019. ‘Age and Stage’ Workshops Schedule can be found below:

19 Feb – Rowan Room [10-12:00]
