When We Were Nearly Young

Storytelling • Running Time: 60 mins
Written & Performed by Lebogang Mogashoa
Lebogang tells hilarious stories. He survived North Korean bomb threats. He’s the one to call when you need help recovering from secret jaw-shaving cosmetic surgery. He knows which celebrity endorsed (urgh, Gwyneth) detox diet causes Martha Stewart hallucinations. And he knows what it's like to live inside a political campaign. Bring friends and all of your emotions to this show.
In When We Were Nearly Young, Lebogang Mogashoa tells real stories from his life with humour and candor. These are tales often shared among friends after a really good meal. They are personal and leave you feeling less alone in the world.
This time around Lebogang shares hilarious and poignant stories about helping a friend hide from her family while recovering from secret plastic surgery, the highs and lows of his mother’s political campaign, a carefully planned but disastrous first kiss, an unexpected religious conversion and living close next-door to North Korea for five years.
When We Were Nearly Young is modelled after storytelling shows like This American Life, The Moth and RISK!
