The Cline couple will experience all the pitfalls and frustrations which confront older adults in their retirement years. Will they negotiate the shoals and reefs successfully? Will their marriage survive? Will they survive?

Old Age Ain’t for Sissies was written by Chalmers Award winner Rex Deverell and created in consultation with over 150 seniors across Toronto and the GTA. The play begins with a retirement party. For some the party heralds a glorious new era of freedom and adventure. For others it sounds a peal of doom. The drama is punctuated with songs resonating with the determination of seniors who want neither to be dismissed nor forgotten. The skillful facilitators of Mixed Company Theatre will engage with the audience to bring hope and light into what could otherwise be a crisis of despair.

The production stars older actors with an array of backgrounds and experiences. If you’ve never experienced a piece of forum theatre, this is your chance to see how it works. This interactive play invites the audience to come on stage, take on the role of one of the characters and explore possible options to the issues presented.
