What were you doing in 1981?

Ronald Reagan was the newly elected President of the United States. We were not a war. The first personal computer was put on sale. AIDS was a mystery without a name. Big hair! Giant shoulder pads! MTV! And Sandra Day O’Connor became the first woman ever to serve on the Supreme Court.

What was it like to be a woman in 1981? Can you recall?

Talking With…, by Jane Martin, looks at the lives of women in that distant decade. Eleven women – eleven stories. The play is a funny, bittersweet, sometimes savage testimonial to who we were and who we wanted to become. Remember with us.

VIVA Theater is an innovative community theater group located in Boulder, Colorado.

We are dedicated to encouraging healthy, vibrant aging through creative expression. We provide opportunities for older adults to participate in the arts as performers, learners and audience.

Come play with us!


VIVA Main Stage: We produce two full-length shows each year, usually at the Dairy Center. These sold-out performances include a number of matinees to make it easy for older adults to attend.

VIVA On the Road: For those who can’t travel to the theater, we bring short plays and programs to senior centers, the JCC, and senior residences in the surrounding area.
