Middle Child

All We Ever Wanted Was Everything

Award-winning gig theatre from Hull’s Middle Child – Click here to buy tickets

Written by Luke Barnes; Music by James Frewer

What happens when your dreams don’t become reality? A first for Freedom Festival, this year we’re bringing you award-winning gig theatre from Hull’s own Middle Child. Following sell-out performances in Edinburgh and Hull in 2017 and ahead of its UK-tour, All We Ever Wanted Was Everything is set across three decades from 1997’s Cool Britannia to Brexit Britain.

Mixing original live music from James Frewer with bold new writing by Luke Barnes, meet Leah and Chris; raised on Harry Potter, New Labour and a belief that one day they would be as ‘special’ as their parents promised. But what happens when those dreams don’t become reality?

British Sign Language interpreters will be on site for this performance on Saturday 1 Sept, 9.30pm.

Funders: Arts Council England, Hull UK City of Culture, The Backstage Trust
Partners: Goodwin Development Trust, Hull City Council
