I’VE BEEN MEANING TO ASK YOU
Created by the Good Room
Why do you have to go to work?
How come adults drink to have fun?
What was life like before the Internet?
Is 50 too old to learn to surf?
This is a work full of questions. Asked by young people. Answered by adults. Transformed inside a theatre-turned-playground-turned-battleground delivered by Generation Up Next. Watch as age collides with experience in a revealing one-hour tell-all, where adults take a backseat as a powerful gang of 9-13-year-olds drop some truths… and the mic.
Combining anonymous submissions with high-impact video design, I’ve Been Meaning to Ask You pits Age against Experience in a conversation built around three key starting points: what you’ve been told, what you know to be true, and what you want to believe.
Don’t miss the hit of Brisbane Festival as the national youth theatre company, ATYP do what they do best, place young people centre stage and watch the magic happen. Built in collaboration with and performed by local young people, audiences both young and old will come together to tackle the big (and little) questions that life throws at us.
“The most wonderful and life-affirming theatre – The Good Room are exceptional.” – Benjamin Law
