Description

How can plays and performances, past and present, inform our understanding of aging? Drawing primarily on the Western dramatic canon, on contemporary British theater, on popular culture, and on paratheatrical practices, Staging Ageing investigates theatrical engagement with aging from the Greek chorus to Reminiscence Theater. It also explores the relationship of the plays, performances, and practices to the material, social, and ideological conditions that produced them. A foundational work on the cultural past and present of aging, the book will find grateful audiences not only among scholars but also among theater and health care professionals.
