A play for older actors.This play presents a kaleidoscope of stories about war, displacement, revolution and liberation taking us on an emotional journey across three continents. Based on the actors' personal and family experiences, the stories interweave and overlap, exploring moments of joy, sadness and laughter set against key historical events over the last hundred years. Poignant, moving, funny, inspiring, this is the first piece of work created by the Visible Ensemble, dedicated to putting older performers and their rich lives centre stage.Reviews'Memories are picked up like dropped stitches by a company of older actors of defiant talent' -The Observer'At once charming, funny, touching, surprising and sad, this is a ride through the gamut of emotion that is life, or in this case, many lives' -Everything Theatre'This is endlessly, endlessly moving theatre - go see' -A Younger Theatre'A beautiful production - there is an immediacy to the stories that is intoxicating'-Entertainment Focus'This is an ensemble work in which every performance is magnificent and as a whole a wonderful accomplishment. Don't miss it.' -British Theatre Guide'by the time I left the theatre, I was having difficulty selecting favourite scenes to pick out in this review. And that would be my conclusion: you have to see this play, because there's just so much of it that you can't afford to miss.' -A Theatre Blog'All of which makes the mission statement of 'Visible'-a new ensemble company formed of older actors - even more urgent and necessary' -Exeunt MagazineAudience feedback'It was so refreshing to see older performers depicted not in the narrow ways we generally see them on stage and screen - as doddering fools, terribly nice little old ladies, or bit-part players. The evening very much made me think about how terribly out of step we are in our industry in terms of how we present older people. So if that was - in part - the ensemble's intention, then job well done!' -Lucy Kerbel Director, Tonic Theatre'It was as very moving performance, as the memories were totally personal and beautifully delivered. And a brave and long-overdue venture. Please keep me on your mailing list.' -Katharine Sathe, University of 3rd Age'A superbly energetic production - not just physically, but in its wealth of ideas too. I do hope it gets the recognition it deserves.' -Jane DornerGeneral Audience via Feedback Wall'The best night's theatre I have experienced in years. A master lesson in acting.''As a 20 year old, I feel this show was an out of this world way of showing what came before phones and the internet. I don't think I quite realised how different your childhoods were to how mine has been - how different my own late grandmother's must have been. Congratulations on a fab show!''A very inspiring and polished production. Older people are the people we all must learn from - this is a wonderful example.''An endearing performance about hopes, dreams and the power of memory. Excellently told by a talented cast. Well done! Could feel history coming alive.Love from a 20 year old American, Katie.''To put it very simply: thank you for sharing this universal story made of your individual memories in such a way everyone can connect with it. Moving. Funny. An open window for reflection on how we all carry our stories, memories, family bonds.'Sonja LindenBorn in London to German refugee parents, Sonja is a theatre producer and writer whose plays have been produced on radio and on stage throughout the UK and the United States.

They work as professional consultants, peers to the top executives in their client organizations, and, for these organizations, the work is critical. The clients receive top-notch professional assistance, and the students have an experience not available in any classroom. They are a new breed of young professional. I was the same five-foot five-inch girl that arrived on June 5, barring a tan, a birthday, and maybe a few pounds. But I had grown. So tall. - Hermona Tamrat, Peru 2012 'Do you believe you really made a difference ...' a radio interviewer ... asked me. I responded, 'Yes, I do ... but I believe it made more of an impact in my life. It gave me confidence and helped me believe in myself. It helped me believe that I could do something big.' - Adrienne White, Ghana 2008 The volunteering experience has made me realize that, while I may not be able to completely change the world with my actions, I am able to do small things that make a difference. I hope to change the world - one step at a time. - Yixin Liu, Palau 2009 I think I'll be volunteering for the rest of my life. I guess you can take the girl out of Peace Corps, but you can't take the Peace Corps out of the girl! - Kathryn (Kayt) Dickens, Ghana 2008 I don't take for granted the opportunities I've had in life. I consider myself very fortunate. I benefited from my family, and I am very grateful for the values and culture they passed on to me.

From the moment of his birth, the life of Gabriel Adams is marked by signs and miracles. At his baptism, the pastor witnesses a blood-red cross appear on Gabriel's forehead and is struck down by heavenly visions. Even more striking, as Gabriel grows into a teenager, he raises the dead by crying tears of blood, saving his principal from a heart attack and his best friend Mary after a horrific car crash. With each miracle, the paramedics and doctors are astounded, but Gabriel refuses to take credit, saying only that they occurred through the grace of God. Everything changes for Gabriel when, on his way to Rwanda as a Peace Corps volunteer, his plane is struck down in a storm. The plane crashes on a remote island in the Atlantic, killing all aboard except for him and leaving him stranded. Though taken in by a tribe of friendly natives, Gabriel soon realizes that he has no way to get home to his family and Mary, with whom he has begun to fall in love. As Gabriel searches for a way home and struggles to come to terms with his miraculous powers, he will encounter more challenges than he ever dreamed possible. It will take every ounce of his unshakeable faith in God and his unwavering love for Mary to see him through to the end and to a final understanding of God's purpose for his life.
