‘In the shop they didn’t see me. They saw a warm cardigan and sensible shoes woman. An insignificant woman.’
The Experience of Being is a funny, absorbing and moving one-woman play about dwindling power, how to challenge it and why ageism makes growing older far harder than it needs to be.
Written and performed by Carol Moore. Directed by Patrick J. O’Reilly.
