A show by Colby Senior Nick Pattison.

Showcasing both the rich history and daily life of older people, an intergenerational audience will learn to understand ways that disease, age, and ability interact with the life of older people. Based on narratives from residents at Lakewood Nursing Home in Waterville, this show will provide some of the deepest ways of understanding our very existence, not only with regard to age, but also in relation to each of our destinies. While fostering care and comfort for older individuals on and off-stage, these tales give insight and reflection into all ages, reviewing the joys, tribulations, and most memorable moments of these individuals’ lives.

This performance consists of two ticketed performances at Colby College’s Strider Theater on April 6 and 7, plus one first-come-first-served performance at Lakewood Continuing Care Center (220 Kennedy Memorial Drive, Waterville) on April 14.

Tickets for the Colby College performance are available at http://colby.edu/theaterdance or at the door.
