"A truly global show that knows no borders…Truth to Power Café is part-theatrical performance, part-memoir, part impassioned activism"
"A new kind of theatre… deeply empowering"
"The revolutionary potential of theatre at its simplest and most direct"
"A priceless repository of living social history, wit, wisdom and defiance"
Jeremy Goldstein’s Truth to Power Café is a profound theatrical reflection on loss, hope and resistance.
This internationally acclaimed performance event is told through memoir, poetry, image, music, film and personal stories from the people of Huddersfield 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.
Speaking truth to power is a non-violent means of conflict resolution, the origins of which lie in the anti-war movement. In our era of post-truth and fake news, speaking truth to power is widely accepted to mean saying something to those in a position of trust or authority who don’t want to hear it.
