  • Mission statement

    Everybody has a story to tell and their own way of telling it.......

    20 Stories High create bold, contemporary and imaginative theatre with and for young people aged 13-30.
    Our home is in Liverpool, but our reach is national and international.
    We explore, discover and play in order to create new art forms and develop excellent new writing.
    We collaborate with experienced professionals, young participants and emerging artists.
    We make theatre that is popular, but also challenges and takes risks.
    We strive to make our audiences think as well as feel.
    Our work is political: promoting diversity and challenging inequality.
    We are passionate about pushing the boundaries of what theatre is and what it means to young people.

    Our Mission
    • We create professional touring theatre for schools, youth clubs and theatre venues.
    • We produce free participatory projects, where young people develop their skills and perform themselves.
    • We engage in the use of digital media, creating innovate projects, widening both our reach and participation.
    These strands feed into each other artistically, socially and politically. Working with the narrative and musical influences of communities across Liverpool, we make vibrant and relevant theatre that young people want to see.
