You’re Doing What? At Your Age?!
Applied Theatre PhD candidate Leah Tidey offers a performance and workshop based on her community-based research.
Working with an intergenerational group to address stigma about sexuality across the lifespan offers an opportunity to hear from those who are often left out of the conversation. A unique component of the evening is the follow-up workshop that will allow audiences to interact with performers, explore themes of the play, and discuss their reactions to the performance.
