Amusing, confusing and occasionally dark, this riotous new gig-theatre show is based on hundreds of real-life secrets submitted by young people in Leeds and Reykjavík.

This epic new show is created by Icelandic artist Ásrún Magnúsdóttir in collaboration with an incredible collective of young Leeds based performers and artists. Original music gives voice to the unspoken worries and private lives of teenagers – from soulful melodies to electric and rousing rhythms.

Come prepared to put yourself in the shoes of today’s teens – as these extraordinary performers give voice to thousands of real-life concerns and the things that are rarely spoken about or seen.

Alongside the performance of SECRETS, Transform’s future-gazing group of Young Curators have curated IF WALLS COULD TALK, an immersive audio exhibition pre and post show – featuring up-and-coming Leeds poets and spoken word artists exploring how secrets can become hidden monsters.
