Elephant-in-the-Room Series: Death & Dying
So much that needs healing in our world... why are we uncomfortable talking about it? New Hampshire Theatre Project has launched a provocative series featuring four plays about subjects that we as a society often have difficulty discussing: abuse and human trafficking, mental illness, the opioid crisis, and death and dying. Each event is moderated by Timothy Barretto, known for his UNH courses on Managing Conflict in the Community, who will facilitate discussion among audience members, artists, and a panel of experts on the topic. Questions focus on attitudes about ethical issues involved in the subject over time and today, and our responsibility as a society to bring these issues out of the shadows and into the cultural mainstream.
On May 3 join us for the final program in our four-part series, focusing on death and dying, featuring a playreading of Nick Payne's Constellations. Panelists include Maren Tirabassi, author, and Dr. Sarah Macduffie, Palliative Care, Wentworth Douglass Hospital. Visit www.nhtheatreproject.org for more details. Admission is free and open to the public.
