Edie is a woman in her 70s facing eviction from the home and neighbourhood that she loves, raised her children and grown older in. While frustrated and upset, she has a chance meeting with her younger neighbour Marcus. This sparks a warm friendship and the potential for a positive change starts to form across the generational divide.
Moving Day is a part-improvised and part-scripted promenade show performed within Lewisham Shopping Centre, the Migration Museum and in Deptford Library. Glorious Age has devised Moving Day using their personal experiences to address issues they see as important and happening in their community right now.
Glorious Age is Entelechy Arts’ theatre company, a collective of people aged 65+ who create artistic projects and performances which are courageous, beautiful, joyful and risk-taking. Glorious Age has been working together for over fifteen years, devising and performing work inspired by their own experiences and addressing subjects that are important to them including parenthood and family, loneliness and isolation, and what it’s like to grow older in South London.
