Unit Collective Theater Explores Older Adults’ Lives at Augustana Care

The Unit Collective is a group of diverse, under-represented theater artists who work to make the invisible visible. They have created a new piece about older adults to be presented at the Playwrights Center in Minneapolis as a staged reading Tuesday, March 31. The piece was created by six playwrights who are getting to know Augustana Care residents. “We want to help push down the walls around people’s perceptions of older adults,” says founding-member playwright Anton Jones. He and other playwrights will bring the plays to Augustana Care in April, 2015 to develop them further. Learn more at
