An immersive new show about identity and belonging. Brought to you by Zest Theatre and Half Moon Theatre.
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?
Created against the background of Brexit, What Once Was Ours explores how politics and national values impact on the complex lives of one family. Striking original music and immersive design combine to create this powerful new production for young people.
Suitable for ages 12+

Lincolnshire One Venues, Eggbox Theatre and Noise Academy have teamed up with a group of young performers who will be presenting a short 20mins curtain raiser before What Once Was Ours. The performance is inspired by the Brexit landscape and features movement, spoken word, theatre and a DJ performance. Please note that the final running time of What Once Was Ours does not include the curtain raiser.
