Ira Brand, A cure for aging

A Cure for Aging

Thu 13 Feb 7.30pm Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 16+

“I’m sorry to do this so early in the show. It’s really quite rude of me. But do you mind if I ask you how old you are?”

A Cure for Ageing is a piece about being young and foolish, and becoming old and wise, or about being young and wise, and becoming old and foolish. It asks how we can talk more honestly about ageing, drawing together true personal accounts and shameless speculation in a celebration of life and an attempt to fall in love with our own decline. A show of indelicate questions and immortal jellyfish, it is about numbers, years, the passing of time, and the fact that we have all, already, started dying.

“It’s powerful, uncomfortable, and beautiful … Her methods are unashamedly unscientific yet the work carries an authority born out of absolute honesty”
Fringe Review – Highly
