In collaboration with Age Friendly Edmonton, the GeriActors & Friends have written 5 NEW plays! With stories about family, history, love and dating, ageism, abuse, and maintaining our health and independence these plays explore what it means to be a senior in Edmonton.

  • Be Careful – Renovations, bank loans, blueprints, and more. The lengths we go to keep our family safe.
  • Claire & Jacob – From the 60’s to today four people share their stories of coming out.
  • Love Me Tinder – Times have changed. Life has sped up and online dating is the worst. In one minute you’ve said yes or no to 10 people. What’s next? Breaking up before you meet? Gertrude is about to find out.
  • Reading the Signs – Just as they are inventing rear view cameras, warning buzzers for changing lanes, self-driving cars, and car-sharing deals, I have to give up driving.
  • Sanctuary – A play about elder abuse and finding your sanctuary.
