‘The revolutionary potential of theatre at its best and most direct…’ The Guardian

‘Truth to Power Café’ continues its exploration into the power of free speech, and political activism as Bradford participants of all ages, beliefs, and backgrounds have five minutes to speak truth to power before a live audience and respond to the question: ‘Who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?’

Speaking truth to power has its origins in the anti-war movement but in this era of post-truth and fake-news is widely accepted to mean saying something to those in authority or position of trust who don’t want to hear. Is it to your parents, a sibling, a politician, lover, landlord, neighbour, 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' tells it like it is. Take part, I did. Or just turn up for inspiration and empowerment’. Peter Tatchell, International Human Rights Activist

‘Being part of the Café was a truly empowering experience’. Phoebe Thomas Weekes, student and participant

’Truth to Power Cafe’ is a new theatre work forming part of an international art project inspired by the political and philosophical beliefs of Harold Pinter and his Hackney Gang. For more information visit London Artists Projects.
