Zest Theatre and Half Moon co-production

What Once Was Ours

An immersive new show about identity and belonging.

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, What Once Was Ours has been developed in

consultation with young people across the country and uses their direct words and

opinions to explore how politics and national values impact on the complex lives of one



Beautiful imagery, striking original music and immersive design combine to create this

powerful new production for young people, which asks why we’ve become so fearful of

anyone who is different from us.

What Once Was Ours is a Zest Theatre and Half Moon co-production: an exciting

collaboration by two of the UK’s leading companies creating work for young people.

Supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
