Created against the background of Brexit, What Once Was Ours has been developed through direct contact with young people across the country and uses their words and opinions to explore how politics and national values impact on the complex lives of one family…this powerful new production for young people, which asks why we’ve become so fearful of anyone who is different from us.“
