Britain’s baby boomers – the original protest generation. They burned their bras, banned the bomb and gave peace a chance. Generation Z – branded as more into selfies and statuses than saving the world.

And it’s the guys in the middle who make all the decisions.

Taking their audience on a journey through first acts of youthful rebellion to bringing the fight to the powers that be, via an honest conversation about one generations legacy and another’s hopes and dreams, Hull Truck Theatre’s over 55’s acting group, Act III, and the 16+ Youth Theatre think it’s time they got their say.

In a not so secret location, The Guildhall, in the city that defied the King to kick start the English Civil War, Defiance will see two generations fed up of being ignored take control as they explore what it really means to be defiant in 2017.

Recommended age: 14+
