The production dramatises the leading figures behind the study and its participants. It's a compelling story about a shared experience, and it's also a slick production with a mostly older cast who are terrific. It's great to see the Spare Tyre Theatre Company and Wellcome Trust explore these issues as we all head towards getting older, which surely has to be much better than the alternative!
There is a positive message about healthy bodies and healthy minds, and that while the research has shown there is much that isn’t known, there is a lot to be said about getting on and living life to the fullest. Now that’s always a great message to take from the theatre.
