Secret Histories: Seattle Youth


About the Production

Secret Histories: Seattle Youth explores the first-hand experiences of five teenagers living in Seattle. The teens, who are originally from Sudan, Somalia, Mexico, and the United States, share their own personal stories of war, migration, homelessness, mental health and family struggles. The production seeks to break down stereotypes and engage in community dialogue by showcasing the real-life stories and experiences of Seattle youth whose stories might not otherwise be heard.
