Tuesday 14th May

Presented by An Grianán Theatre 

Written and performed by Carol Moore

On her 60th birthday, Cathy should be celebrating but it rapidly goes downhill.

“In the shop they didn’t see me. They saw a warm cardigan and sensible shoes woman. An insignificant woman.”

A funny, absorbing and moving one-woman play, The Experience of Being is about dwindling power, how to challenge it and why ageism makes growing older far harder than it needs to be.

Inspired by her own experience of feeling invisible on reaching her 60s, Carol Moore uses a mix of text, music and physicality to tell this empowering story of a woman who decides to take back control.

Part of BEALTAINE FESTIVAL | A celebration of creativity for older people.
