Am I Old Yet?

Am I Old Yet?

Series of short self-contained scenes, random conversations (vignettes)—entertaining and a wee bit provocative, especially if you are a woman of 'a certain age'. Helen is in her late-70s, adjusting to the reality of her ageing body, determined to claim her status as 'elder', 'crone', 'senior' with dignity, honesty and joy. Her family have other ideas, refusing to accept that she is, quite possibly, old. Written, performed and produced by Aussie-born, Liverpool-based actress, singer-songwriter and performance poet Flloyd Kennedy, with occasional guest performers. We use Buzzsprout and it makes hosting this podcast a smooth and enjoyable process. You can find out more here https://www.buzzsprout.com/?referrer_id=1708289
