Revolutionary political theatre gives power to the people in Australian first

Goldstein is now calling on locals to register as a participant and be part of this international project. “Is it to your parents, a sibling, a politician, lover, landlord, neighbour, sports trainer, carer, religious leader, boss, banker or simply your best friend? It’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late,” Mr Goldstein said. Each participant will have five minutes to answer the question before a live audience come Festival time.

“In London we presented the show at Soho Theatre and it was a profound and defiant experience, so I can’t wait to see how the Gold Coast responds,” Mr Goldstein said.

Founding London Artists Projects in 2000, Jeremy Goldstein commissions, produces and writes theatre that The Guardian describes as an “evocative theatrical wonderland”.

Working with the likes of Andy Warhol Factory superstar Penny Arcade, Goldstein’s shows have won Evening Standard, Herald Angel and Scotsman Fringe First Awards among others.

“It’s a project that celebrates the power of free speech, political activism and the hero in all of us,” Ms Fell said.

Locals have until 16 March to register as a participant online at
