WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
20 Stories High bring real teenagers onto the stage to tell real tales straight from their MP3 players. As they hear the words in their headphones, they deliver line for line to the audience what they are hearing - live. No stone is left unturned... with unflinching honesty they discuss, religion, sex, race, friendship and family. Boys and girls play each other and cultural identity is swapped, revealing some challenging and insightful perspectives. With live music, beatboxing and projections, Tales from the MP3 is a completely unique, new play from one of the UK's top theatre companies for young adult audiences. 20 Stories High are two-times winners of the Brian Way Award (for the UK's best new play for young people) 2010 and 2011, and winner of the Writers Guild of Great Britain award for Best Play for Young People 2013. Running time approx 1 hour ten minutes with no interval. Recommended for ages 13 and above.
