I’m sorry to do this so early in the show.
It’s really quite rude of me.
But do you mind if I ask you how old you are?

A Cure for Ageing is a one woman show about being young and foolish, and becoming old and wise. Or it’s about being young and wise, and becoming old and foolish.

How can we talk more honestly and openly about ageing, and the physical, mental, and emotional experience of getting older? A Cure for Ageing invites us to ask this question, offering intimate and personal accounts woven together in a celebration of life and the journey of years. A delicate piece about how much we are or are not defined by our age, about the passing of time, and about the fact that we have all, already, started dying.

Ira Brand is an artist, performance-maker and writer, working across theatre and live art. Her work has been presented at Camden People’s Theatre, The Junction, The ShowRoom, Forest Fringe, Buzzcut and Pulse, and A Cure for Ageing was part of the SPILL National Platform.

Developed at and supported by Cambridge Junction, Camden People’s Theatre and The Yard Theatre. Supported by Arts Council England.
