The Seven Ages of Patience is an epic, contemporary myth that spans eight decades of one woman’s life, as she experiences pivotal moments which have defined modern Brent, and British society.

Written by Chinonyerem Odimba and directed by Katie Posner, this new play for the community sets out to prove that, despite experiencing times of adversity and intolerance, ordinary people can have an extraordinary impact.

Starring over 100 performers (aged from 11-77 years old!), this production features a non-professional cast of volunteers from Brent and the local area.
