Extensive interviews and discussions with 15 senior citizens between the ages of 65 and 95 (many of whom were extras in my 2008 production of Don Pasquale) were the inspiration for the creation of an evening of theater based on their past and on their present lives. The set from Don Pasquale was used as a found space in which to layer found and played music, sound, spoken word and image.
