Ages and stages

Ages and Stages is a continuing research collaboration between Keele University and the New Vic Theatre exploring the impact of theatre on ideas about, and the experience of, ageing.

Our 12 month ‘follow-on’ project - ‘translating research into practice’ - involves: establishing an intergenerational theatre company; devising and touring a new performance piece; developing and delivering an inter-professional training course; and scoping out the potential for a Creative Age Festival with partners.

Poems about the Ages and Stages experience

Colin Ramsell, performer and member of the Ages and Stages Theatre Company, has written these fantastic poems about taking part in our two productions, 'Our Age, Our Stage' and 'Happy Returns'.
