9 - 10 July I’ve Been Meaning To Ask You Created by The Good Room

Canberra Youth Theatre and The Street present a Critical Stages Touring Production.

Why do you have to go to work? How come adults drink to have fun? Is 50 too old to learn to surf? What was life like before the Internet?

They asked. You answered. The next generation is about to drop some truths… and the mic!

Performed inside a theatre-turned-playground-turned-battleground, this is a riotous theatrical experience full of questions asked by young people, and answered by adults.

Watch as age collides with experience in a revealing one-hour-tell-all that combines anonymous experiences with high-impact video design. Adults take a back seat as a powerful panel of 9-13 year olds tackle the answers they receive to the questions they’ve always wanted to know.

Built in collaboration with and performed by local young people from across Canberra, I’ve Been Meaning To Ask You brings audiences both young and old together to tackle the big (and little) questions that life throws at us.
