Abstract

The paper tackles the archetypes of the wise old man and the wise old woman in classical tragedies and contemporary plays. The following modifications of the ar-chetype are detected in the dramas by Naomi Wallace: the elderly characters are either protagonists (One Flea Spare) or catalysts (Slaughter-City) of the action; the ageist stereotypes are subverted; the “life-review” concept is productively imple-mented in both plays. The author of the paper analyzes gerontological portrayals of the dramatis persona and their choice of the strategies of aging.
