Canberra Youth Theatre – I’ve Been Meaning To Ask You

Why do you have to go 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 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.

“Where do I begin? I loved all of it “Broadway World

‘’The best Good Room project realisation yet. I’ve Been meaning to ask You has been created using audience and anonymous stories and the consequence is genuine audience engagement to ponder not only its targeted central questions, but the value of communication between generations that typically don’t interact with such honesty and consideration “Blue Curtains Brisbane
