GeriActors & Friends are seniors from Edmonton and area and the ‘Friends’ are students and alumni from the University of Alberta. We range in age from early twenties to late eighties.
Using a playful approach to theatre we produce original plays based on our stories and on issues of aging. We write plays by playing games, telling stories, improvising, and taking elegant coffee breaks with free flowing discussion. As we rehearse and perform, we continually rewrite our scripts. Humour and music are central to our work; laughter makes accessible even the most difficult subject.
Working intergenerationally we generate new energy, brilliant ideas and lasting friendships. Our plays are focused on aging rather than age, and celebrate our commonalities.
We give 12-18 performances a year to audiences of seniors and their families, students, health professionals and the general public.
“Be careful what you say! He’ll write it down and put it in a play!”
