A co-production with Shopfront Arts Co-Op


Things will never be the same again.

We grow up being lied to. Often for good reasons – so we can believe in something magical, to believe we can be whoever we want to be, or to shield us from pain. This is about those moments. When a lie is told, and the truth is revealed, in that moment something is discovered, something that will change you forever, something that cannot be unlearned. From global conspiracies to childhood memories to the most personal moments of all. This is how we grow up. This is life!

Following our critically acclaimed partnership on 2017’s Dignity of Risk, ATYP and Shopfront Arts Co-op join forces once again to premiere The Lies We Were Told. An ensemble of young people aged 10-18 will share personal stories and verbatim texts, investigating the moments when it felt like you grew up in one day, or one hour, or one minute and nothing would ever be the same again.
