A north of England theatre is seeking over-50s to take part in a new writing project. Bolton’s Octagon will select up to ten local people to attend a writing workshop led by writer Jill O’Halloran. The initiative is among those marking Age Without Limits Day in March. They will be asked to come up with a short (6-8 minutes) monologue or dualogue based on the day’s theme “see and be seen”. Their scripts will be performed that day before an audience by the theatre’s over 50s group, ArtBeat. The Age Without Limits campaign aims to change the way people view ageing and to support individuals and organisations working to make society more age inclusive.
