When I grow up I want to be an old woman

Jay feels invisible and anti-ageing ads worry her, but it’s being ignored once too often as just an old woman that finally inspires her to investigate what this ‘third stage’ of life is.

All This Living! explores the offbeat world of the invisible, shrinking older woman. It premiered at The Street Theatre, Canberra in 2015 and is currently touring NSW.
Created through conversations with older women of Canberra, All This Living! is a contemporary, solo piece of theatre made through The Street’s Hive program. It uses humour, mixed with home truths and leaps of imagination to tell Jay’s story.
Jay’s head is buzzing. Is she an invisible shrinking woman, a faint dot, losing it? She’s on a quest and wants answers. She’s a ‘Retiree’ but from what…

All This Living! was developed through the Street Theatre’s Hive program. The premiere season in Canberra at The Street Theatre received Arts ACT project funding and Street Theatre support.
‘All This Living’ is touring to the Bega Valley to coincide with Seniors Week 2017
Two shows: 3.00pm & 7.00pm on Saturday 4 March 2017 For tickets and details see
