Readers Theater :: On Aging

470 Stephens Hall

Event Type

Readers’ theater is a technique used in the performance of literature in which texts are staged with minimal production values and scripts are not fully memorized. This semester’s Reader’s theater class, along with four to six elders from Salem Lutheran Home, will perform stories, plays, and poems that have to do with aging and old age, emphasizing the pleasures as well as the problems and concerns brought to us by aging in our society.

We anticipate a lively intergenerational and interdisciplinary dialogue among Berkeley graduate students in healthcare professions, humanities, and social sciences, and a group of elders at Salem Lutheran Home, a continuing care retirement community in Oakland. The performance will be followed by a discussion with the audience.

This event is sponsored by CSTMS.
Additional sponsorship comes from:  Program for the Medical Humanities
