Presented by New Annual

From Adelaide to Zagreb and now at New Annual for its Newcastle premiere, Jeremy Goldstein’s Truth to Power Café is a profound theatrical reflection on loss, hope, and resistance.

This inspirational and award-winning performance event is told through memoir, image, film, poetry, music, and true and authentic stories in response to the question: ‘who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?’

Speaking truth to power is a non-violent means of conflict resolution, the origins of which lie in the anti-war movement. Is it to your parents, a sibling, politician, landlord, neighbor, banker, boss, 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 inner circle “The Hackney Gang”, which included Café creator Jeremy Goldstein’s late father, Mick Goldstein, and poet and actor Henry Woolf. For sixty years “The Hackney Gang” maintained their belief in speaking truth to power and remained firmly on the side of the occupied and the disempowered and their allies. It is these people we invite to appear in the show.
