How do elderly Asian men and women feel about growing older in a land so far from where they were born? Basaira Elderly Centre Streatham and Peckham Elderly Asian Group have worked with Rosetta Life in a programme funded by Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity. The result is a dramatic exploration of adventures of emigration, loss of culture and community, deaths they’ve experienced, the support they offer each other in order to survive.

This unique drama with music, dance and storytelling was performed by members of these Elderly Asian Groups together with a professional cast of actors, dancers and musicians. Written and produced by Lucinda Jarrett (Rosetta Life).

    Went and saw this last night at Southwark Playhouse. Was totally impressed. Saw a very good performance from all involved especially the non actors for whom it must have been very daunting to get up on a stage and talk about things very personal to them, credit goes to the organisers, actors for producing such a good performance
