What About Us, The Musical

What About Us is an anti-war protest musical inspired, written, and performed by artists representing the What About Us generation, a new voice for change.       

Over 50 talented young composers, writers and singers are developing the creative. They come from countries that have been affected by war, conflict, and terror including Israel, Palestine, and Ireland, where the musical’s story is based.

The story addresses key societal issues this generation is facing such as increasing armed conflicts, people trafficking, leadership corruption, and refugees forced to leave their home because of war or persecution, wrapped up in a beautiful love story.

The story

Peace Over War

Based on an original love story, a central theme of What About Us is the promotion of peace over war, as the musical journeys through Israel, Palestine & Ireland, parallel conflicts with their own unique histories & challenges.

 

We also witness societal challenges including the horrors of war, increasing armed conflict, persecution, refugees forced to leave their homes and leadership corruption.

We follow our heroes’ journeys through their personal trials and tribulations to an inspiring and emotive final scene climax.
