Created against the background of Brexit, What Once Was Ours has been developed in consultation with young people across the country and uses their direct words and opinions to explore how politics and national values impact on the complex lives of one family.
Beautiful imagery, striking original music and immersive design combine to create this powerful new production for young people, which asks why we've become so fearful of anyone who is different from us.
What Once Was Ours is a Zest Theatre and Half Moon co-production: an exciting collaboration by two of the UK's leading companies creating work for young people.
An immersive new show about identity and belonging.
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?
