The Big Idea: Age
Curated by DC Moore and Penelope Skinner

Double Bill: Do You Feel Too Old?
Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, 7pm
Playwrights Penelope Skinner and DC Moore placed an advert in the Evening Standard asking simply ‘Do You Feel Too Old? Tell Us Why’. A collage of responses will be presented in this one-off verbatim piece in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs.

Double Bill: Eighty and Over
Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, 7pm
The Young Writers Programme has grown up! The Royal Court put out a call to find writers aged 80 and over.

Tickets £8 for both events.

Late Night: Duke of Kendal Singalong
