Why do you have to go to work?
How come adults drink to have fun?
What was life like before the Internet?

This is a work full of questions. Asked by young people. Answered by adults. Transformed inside a theatre-turned-playground-turned-battleground delivered by Generation Up Next. Watch as age collides with experience in a revealing one-hour tell-all, where adults take a backseat as a powerful panel of 9 to 13-year-olds drop some truths… and the mic.

This world premiere from the inspiring collective, The Good Room, is intended for adults and suitable for ages 9 and up. Contains: Some adult themes, theatrical haze, loud noises and young people.

Featuring: Emily Bartlett, Ishan Bose, Stella Charrington, Enid Foulger, Alexander Graves, Cecilia Hill, Lucinda Isbel, Aidan Lee, Ruby MacDonald, Phoenix Macrokanis, Cielle Martin-Falco, Declan Mount, Mandile Mpofu, Harrison Newman, Keira Peirce, Michael Power, Jack Sinclair, Marton Temesvari and Angus Tweed.

Co-presented by Brisbane Festival, QUT, and La Boite Theatre Company
