Children take the stage to describe their parents’ separation in their own words.

When parents separate, their children feel it too. But how often are their voices heard?

Based on the original production by French/Algerian theatre maker Mohamed El Khatib, The Dispute turns the tables on the common narrative of family separation.

Six children take the stage to share their stories, questions and perspectives on their parent’s separation; and those of other young people like them. They ask burning questions and put the event into words, telling it how they see it.

Each of the young performers has taken an active part in the creation of the work. Their observations reveal an intelligence and awareness that is moving, sweet, funny and insightful. The Dispute is audacious, mischievous and emotional.
