WHAT ONCE WAS OURS
Presented by Zest Theatre
Winner Off-West End Award 2018
Katie and Callum couldn’t be any more distant and disconnected: different heritage, different cities, different opportunities. Except there is one thing they’ll always have in common: Dad. What happens when Callum suddenly turns up in desperate need of help?
Created against the background of Brexit, I was a part of a small team from Zest Theatre that went around the country talking to young people about their views on the state of the nation. Their words and opinions built into the creation of the characters Katie and Callum and led to the award-winning play What Once Was Ours, a co-production between Zest Theatre and Half Moon Theatre.
