26 - 29 Sept | La Boite - Roundhouse Theatre


The Good Room (AUS)

World Premiere

"The most wonderful and life-affirming theatre – The Good Room are exceptional" BENJAMIN LAW

Why do you have to go to work? How come adults drink to have fun? Is 50 too old to learn to surf? 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.

This production contains adult themes, Smoke, Haze/Fog, Strobe Lighting. This work is designed for adult audiences but is suitable for ages 9+ years
