Truth To Power Café

Jeremy Goldstein’s Truth to Power Café is a profound theatrical reflection on loss, hope and resistance.

This internationally acclaimed performance event invites the people of Huddersfield to stand up on the Lawrence Batley Theatre's Main Stage and speak from the truth of their lived experience in response to the question ‘who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?’ Is it your parents, a sibling, politician, lover, landlord, neighbour, religious leader, boss, banker, or simply your best friend? It’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.

Truth To Power Café is coming to the Lawrence Batley Theatre on Saturday 19 March 2022. We are looking for a range of participants from across to Huddersfield to take part.
