The medieval-themed, multi-media, one-man show equates the epiphany that initiates midlife crisis with receiving a terminal diagnosis that triggers the grieving process. Using Elizabeth Kübler Ross’ five stages of grief – Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance – “Life in the Middle Ages” illustrates the midlife crisis experience. Addressing both the funny and sad aspects of middle age through observation, storytelling, video, and group participation the show allows the audience to both commiserate and celebrate the universally dreaded concept of midlife crisis.
“WARNING: THIS SHOW IS RATED NC-30. ATTENDING THIS SHOW MAY CAUSE EARLY ONSET MIDLIFE CRISIS IN PERSONS UNDER THIRTY.”
