17 Jul — 19 Jul I’ve Been Meaning To Ask You Created by The Good Room

Canberra Youth Theatre and The Street presents
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.

I’ve Been Meaning To Ask You is a show full of questions asked by young people and answered by adults. Watch as age collides with experience as audiences young and old come together in a revealing one-hour-tell-all.

Adults take a back seat as a powerful panel of 9–13-year-olds from Canberra tackle the answers they receive to the questions they’ve always wanted to know.
