Anna Buhrmann, McMaster University student and recipient of the Drs. Jolie Ringash and Glen Bandiera Renaissance Award, is creating a piece of verbatim theatre that explores long-term care from the perspectives of staff, residents, and family members.
To guide the creation of the piece, Anna is collecting firsthand accounts of experiences lived by these groups via interviews.
Her experience as a care assistant in a nursing home last summer sparked the desire to hear more of the stories of those living and working in long-term care. With the help of a production team, the play will be produced virtually in the Fall of 2021.
If you have a long-term care story, we encourage you to support the work of this budding young advocate by sharing it!
