Who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?

That’s the question award-winning theatre maker Jeremy Goldstein will pose to up to 20 participants in his ‘Truth to Power Café’ this autumn.

Participants of all ages, beliefs and backgrounds can take part in the event and will have up to five minutes to respond to the question before a live audience.

Speaking truth to power has its origins in the anti-war movement, and is now widely accepted to mean saying something to those in authority or position of trust who don’t want to hear it. Is it to your parents, a sibling, politician, lover, landlord, religious leader, boss, banker or simply your best friend? It’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.

‘Truth to Power Café’ is inspired by the political and philosophical beliefs of Nobel prize winning playwright Harold Pinter and his Hackney Gang. Friends for over sixty years, the Gang included Jeremy’s late father Mick Goldstein, and poet polymath Henry Woolf, who at 88 is the last surviving member of the Gang, and whose poetry Goldstein performs in the show as the real-life son of the Hackney Gang.
