SYNOPSIS

Synopsis

Seniors take centre stage! Join us as we present an afternoon of interactive theatre where you, the audience, get to participate. Two topical issues will be covered in this forum theatre production, The first is divorce amongst seniors. In recent times, more couples are seeking divorces in their old age. Why is this the case? The second is abandonment of the elderly. Why do some families leave their elderly family members at the void deck while they are away to work? How can we help them?

The format of forum theatre includes a performance of the play; followed by audience interaction.
