Ninety-one per cent (91%) of women aged 50-64 think it’s time to change the way society looks at aging.  Body & Soul, a new stage production commissioned by Dove, will aim to do just that.     Working with acclaimed playwright Judith Thompson and a national cast of 13 real Canadian women between the ages of 45 and 78, Dove has commissioned a play that will celebrate the diverse beauty of mature women.
