National Theatre's Pericles

Open Age Members from West London are taking part in the National Theatre’s musical production of Shakespeare’s Pericles.

A company of over 200 people of all ages from across London join together with professional artists to breathe new life into this classic tale. Pericles will run at the National Theatre’s Olivier stage from 26 – 28 August 2018.

Pericles launches Public Acts, the National Theatre’s new initiative to create extraordinary acts of theatre and community. The production marks the mid-point of a two-year partnership with Open Age and seven other organisations who deliver visionary work in their communities, together with theatre partner Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch. Through Public Acts, members of Open Age have taken part in a programme of workshops, trips and opportunities for exchange, and will form part of the company for Pericles.

Leaving a Gift in Your Will

Open Age is raising awareness of leaving a gift to charity in your will. Legacies are an important way to support Open Age, as they help us to plan so that we can be there in the future for older people who need us. As well as providing for your family, friends and other loved ones in your will, please do consider the possibility of leaving a gift to Open Age.
