DEEP LISTENING

Deep Listening is a one-person play exploring the subjects of death, dying and end of life care. The play conveys valuable insights to caregivers. While conducting research interviews with healthcare providers, playwright Teresa Weed was informed that, “As a culture, we are dying very badly.” This vivid, moving play focuses attention on a stark reality we all face, but which is rarely addressed openly in our society. Deep Listening engages the audience with familiar stories, gentle humor and simple songs, reinforcing palliative education while candidly exploring the reality of what it is like to “look death in the face” on a daily basis.
