Age is a Feeling (Coming June 2024)
Inspired by hospices, mystics and trips to the cemetery, Age is a Feeling wrestles with our endless chances to change course while we’re alive. A covert rallying cry against cynicism and regret. A call to seize our time.
Written and performed by Dora-award winning Haley McGee (The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale), this never-the-same-twice show is a gripping story about how our relationship with mortality shapes the way we live.
Charting the seminal moments, rites of passage and turning points in an adult life - your life - from the day you turn 25 through to your death, Age is a Feeling celebrates the glorious and melancholy unknowability of human life. Olivier-nominated, Fringe First winning, Age is a Feeling premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022, before transferring to the Soho Theatre in London for two sold-out runs.
