The piece was devised and produced by theatre professionals in consultation with computer engineers as part of a major research programme developing computer systems to support older and disabled people. By the interaction of a researcher, two actors and some video clips, the piece will demonstrate: a) the vital importance of all stakeholders being properly consulted and for them to inter-communicate, and b) the role of theatre as a tool in this process. The rationale and methodology of this technique will be discussed in an interactive session with the audience.</ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
