Three acts, three decades and the end of the world.

Award-winning Hull theatre company Middle Child is back with a new piece of gig theatre, mixing bold new writing by Luke Barnes with original live music from James Frewer.

All We Ever Wanted Was Everything is an anarchic theatrical epic, performed at one of the city’s best-loved nightclubs with support each night from a different Humber Street Sesh band. Live and loud, this is Middle Child at their best.

Middle Child is an associate company of Paines Plough and a supported artist of Hull Truck Theatre. Their previous work includes Weekend Rockstars (2015) and Ten Storey Love Song (2016).


All We Ever Wanted Was Everything is like nothing you’ve ever seen before at Welly: a gig that tells a story about the end of the world.

It’s a three-act anthem set across three decades, from 1997’s Cool Britannia to 2007’s Broken Britain and today’s Brexit Britain.

It’s about the world we inherited and the one we’re leaving behind. It’s the story of a million beating hearts and an asteroid with other plans.

Featuring support from some of Hull’s favourite Humber Street Sesh bands this latest event from Middle Child promises to be an anarchic epic and a truly good night out, with live music from:
