Abstract

The study examines interview transcripts of 26 elderly Israelis who are describing their own death, using the dramaturgy analysis approach. The studyidentifies eight meaning-making strategies used to construct the "good death": using story in the form of drama; describing multiple scenarios; assuming the director and playwright roles in varying degrees; explaining what agood death is not; comparing previous experiences with death; using questions, similes, and metaphors; commenting with sarcastic remarks and black humor; and describing dreams. A composite drama, resulting from the stories of all participants, is presented in three acts, including the time prior todeath, the imminent death, and the funeral. Each dramatic episode is constructed by descriptions of the script, purpose, action area, actors, and performances. The ultimate intent of a drama is to establish new meanings of dying and its aftermath for actors and audience, which is to maintain and promote continuity of one's identity, heritage, and legacy.
