Truth or Dare
G64 Truth or Dare Festival
Five days of bold new theatre made for and by young people of all ages, exploring and challenging the themes of truth and dare. What does it take to dare - dare to be, dare to do, dare to dream? And how do we what the truth is in this "post-truth" world?
Join us to celebrate G64, our thriving young people's theatre company, through workshops, performances, the final of our play writing competition, and above all an opportunity for young voices to be heard.
Once Upon A Dare
A new musical created and performed by our 8-13 year olds. Well known stories are discovered in the forbidden library, but not as we know them! How does the story change if one of the characters had DARED to take a different journey…?
Wed 6th 7pm / Sat 9th 7pm
What does it take to dare – dare to be, dare to do, dare to dream? Is the truth really out there, and if we find it how are we even meant to know it’s not “post-truth” truth?!
Over the summer we took 14 young people on a residential trip to explore these questions – here’s what they thought!
Wed 6th 8.30pm / Sat 9th 3pm
It's 2050 and changes in technology mean lying politicians are a thing of the past. Sounds perfect right? But with apps monitoring our every word TruthOr looks at who's really in charge.
Developed with G64’s 14-17s & written by award winning playwright Martin Murphy.
This darkly comic ensemble piece both entertains and challenges.
Thurs 7th 8.30pm / Sat 9th 8.30pm
Dare to share
A variety night of performances by young people and some of G64’s alumni! Join us for a sharing of songs, music, drama and dance – fun for all the family!
