Plays that are “Ageless”
These plays are “Ageless” because they feature active, engaged seniors whose lives have taken interesting twists and turns. Each is a well-crafted, entertaining story that reveals or helps the audience re-discover something about humanity, leading to energetic conversations about the play.
