“When life is about stories, we develop empathy”

GeriActors is an intergenerational theatre company in Edmonton ranging in age from early twenties to ninety. Our plays are based on true stories, focusing on ageing rather than age, and celebrating our commonalities.

*NEW* Audio Plays Listen to our stories of WWII, farm life in Alberta, growing up in Trinidad and more. This spring we are performing on Zoom and over the phone.
