2 Sided Mirror – Mixed Theatre Company
Mixed Company Theatre provided an interactive, role-play about navigating a loved one’s life-threatening illness, and supporting older adults through depression and suicidal ideation.
Reality based scenarios focused on how to support loved ones through major health related choices and the mental health impact of illnesses on everyone involved. Participants learned how to recognize the signs of older adults who are experiencing depression and suicidal ideation and explore new ways to support one another if and when these circumstances arise.
MCT recognizes that the content of “Two-Sided Mirror,” and the issues of Medically Assisted Death (MAiD), Suicide, and Depression in aging communities are complex and nuanced. And that audience members who may be personally impacted by these issues may have feelings, thoughts, and experiences they would like to discuss during or after watching this show.
