In June 2018 – Seniors’ Month – we will tour our elder abuse show The Golden (C)age across senior service organizations in the GTA!

Mixed Company Theatre‘s production of Luciano Iogna’s The Golden (C)age is a rarely-seen in-depth examination of being a senior citizen in a society that perpetuates youth and perpetually denies the fact that people age. It is a play about the problems – and glories! – of getting old in a world that is defined by and for youth. Issues of intergenerational conflicts and, potentially, abuse are presented within family and community settings in a manner that both enlighten and entertain. And with Mixed Company Theatre‘s unique style of Forum Theatre, The Golden (C)age puts the spectator right in the middle of the action – to become a spect-actor within the play – as a way to discuss and analyze the issues towards trying to find realistic alternatives to the problems that aging will bring to every single one of us.
