OVER 60's






OVER 60's

Theatre ADAD have undertaken two projects in the London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, which were pitched specifically at the over 60's.

Working in partnership with a local agency for the elderly Sixty Plus, the local police and council, the plays and follow-up workshops have looked as issues of safety for the elderly and toured day centres, care homes and community halls

The first of these projects, ‘Safe and Sound’ addresses issues of safety within the home, (specifically looking at ‘bogus callers), and the lack of understanding that can arise between generations.

The second of these projects,‘Sunny Side Of The Street’, addresses issues of change, acceptance, isolation and personal safety when outside the home.

With both programmes, ADAD  hosts a workshop which allows for discussion and exploration of the issues through animated interaction with characters from the play and role plays.

The partnership agencies attended each performance and were able to offer help and support to those attending, both physically by offering door chains etc and also with help and advice about accessing local amenities.  

Both of these programmes will readily adapt to similar audiences in other areas.
