The Palliative Players of Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County will present the improv theater production “End Stage” from 9 a.m.-noon, March 10 at Buchanan Alumni House.
Through unscripted role-playing, the performers act out possible end of life scenarios and conversations in families challenged by serious illness. The performances explore decisions and wishes that arise in a health care crisis, and offer suggestions for more effective conversations about end of life.
The free public event is part of the Lunch and Learn series of AgingME, Maine’s Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program led in the state by the University of New England, in collaboration with the University of Maine.
