Still Dancing

Directed by Richard Shannon

This trilogy of plays was commissioned and toured by Commonstock Theatre company and dramatizes three different views on the elderly in 20th century Britain.


Culled from the reminiscences of a local pensioners' group, Commonstock's three short plays, written by their young writers' group, powerfully evoke the twilight world of the old, where joy and achievement only exist in the recesses of recollection.
The Stage

Still Dancing showed an altogether admirable understanding of the problems and confusions of elderly people. It was impressive too to see how, under the skilled direction of Richard Shannon, the cast of five had caught on to the feelings and emotions of the old.
