True Story Theatre
‘Talking About Death with Loved Ones’


We know that death will touch all of us – we also know it’s often very difficult to talk with our loved ones about death and dying in a
meaningful way – and too often the conversation never takes place.
Come join us this Friday to learn how interactive Improv theatre can help deepen dialogue about important issues such as, what’s most important to us as we age [and face serious illness] and how we can communicate our values and personal wishes to our loved ones and, hopefully, learn about their preferences for their own care later in life.
