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. Performed inside a theatre-turned-playground-turned-battleground and delivered by Generation Up Next. Watch as age collides with experience and adults take a backseat as a powerful gang of 9-13-year-olds drop some hard truths… and the mic.
Combining your burning questions with high-impact video design, I’ve Been Meaning to Ask You is a revealing one-hour tell-all 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) hits centre stage and lets loose. 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.
WARNINGS: Some adult themes, theatrical haze, loud noises
