Zest Theatre and Half Moon present
WHAT ONCE WAS OURS
A hard-hitting show about identity, belonging and Brexit for teenage and young adult audiences.
Katie and Callum couldn’t be any more distant and disconnected: different heritage, different cities, different opportunities. Except there is one thing they’ll always have in common: Dad. What happens when Callum suddenly turns up in desperate need of help?
Created against the background of Brexit in 2017, this hard-hitting production is now being presented online, as the UK exits the EU. Developed in consultation with young people across the country, What Once Was Ours uses their direct words and opinions to explore how politics and national values impact on the complex lives of one family and asks why we’ve become so fearful of anyone who is different from us.
Still powerfully relevant and directly provocative, the Off West End Award winning What Once Was Ours is a Zest Theatre and Half Moon co-production.
