full length play with songs
3 m 3 w
A multi-layered world of theatrical storytelling with live music and song, Showing our Age explores the myths, realities, and fantasies of aging and the aged. An ensemble of actors and musicians play multiple characters and bring to life the transformation of a generation and the struggles of those who care for them.
At the core of this play with music is the difficult relationship between a middle-aged daughter and her cantankerous ailing father. Is it time to put him in an assisted living facility? Actors bring characters to life based on more than 40 interviews with Los Angeles seniors citizens.
Smartly written…it’s a well-paced, engaging take on a complex social problem.LA Weekly
