Truth to Power Café mixes memoir, image, poetry, music, and live and spontaneous testimony from participants, who speak in response to the question ‘who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?'

People of all ages, beliefs, and backgrounds were invited to take part in the event and now 20 Manchester participants have been selected, and will have up to five minutes to respond to the question before a live audience, over the course of 2 evenings.

Will they be talking to their parents, a sibling, politician, lover, landlord, neighbour, religious leader, boss, banker, or simply their best friend?

It’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.

'The revolutionary potential of theatre at its best and most direct' Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

TRUTH TO POWER CAFÉ is inspired by the political and philosophical beliefs of Nobel prize winning playwright Harold Pinter and his Hackney Gang. The Gang included Jeremy Goldstein’s late father Mick, and poet polymath Henry Woolf, who at 88 is the last surviving member of the Gang, and whose poetry Jeremy performs in the show as the real-life son of the Hackney Gang.

'One of the most fascinating hours you will ever spend in the theatre' BBC Lancashire
