SHELF LIFE


  • Tarragon Theatre Extraspace 30 Bridgman Avenue Toronto, ON, M5R 1X3 Canada

Mixed Company Theatre presents the first production of their ongoing InterGEN Project entitled Shelf Life, written by Luciano Iogna and directed by Simon Malbogat. This world premiere play explores the intergenerational gap and was inspired by workshops held with residents living in Toronto’s neighbourhood of Weston / Mount Dennis, in association with Lambton House and Urban Arts Toronto.

Through the InterGEN Project, Mixed Company bridges the gap between older adults and youth. Designed to increase understanding between older Torontonians and teenagers, the project breaks down intergenerational barriers by sensitizing both groups to the issues, realities, and concerns they have in common as well as those which potentially cause conflict.
