What happens when you're in a hole?

What happens when that hole's inside you?

What do you fill it with to make yourself feel whole?

Last year, 3 teenagers emailed 20 Stories High to ask if they could make a play about their friend Holly. This is how it unravelled…

Teenagers: …So that’s our story and we really want to tell it... and we want to play ourselves… cos actors wouldn’t really be as convincing as us…

20 Stories High: It’s a very moving story… but we’ve got loads on at the moment... we’re really sorry...

Teenagers: But we really want to tell this story, it’s important. It says on your website that “Everybody’s got a story to tell… and their own way of telling it…” We thought you’d help us…

20 Stories High: OK …well come back in a year, when we’re less busy, and let’s talk…

One Year Later… This is the play we made with them… WHOLE… with live music and outspoken truths… Award-winning company 20 Stories High explores themes of sex, religion, and loyalty in this gritty, funny and moving new play with live song, slam poetry and deep bass.
