Talking about death: illuminated through theater
In partnership with The Conversation Project
An evening event open to the public to support important conversations about end of life issues that affect us all.
Death will touch everyone, but it’s difficult to talk about! According to a recent study, 90% of people think it’s important to talk with loved ones about their death, yet only 30% have done it.
Using storytelling theatre True Story Theater and The Conversation Project will create a space for participants to share authentically and gain helpful perspective. Breaking through the taboo, participants not only feel less alone but leave feeling better prepared to have constructive conversations with people they love.
True Story Theater actors listen deeply to audience stories and then transform them into a theatrical performance, portraying the joys, strengths, and challenges that emerge.
Our hope is for attendees to gain empathy and understanding about their own experiences or feelings regarding death, and to inspire honest dialogue with loved ones.
