Tales from the MP3

A 20 Stories High production

Real people. Real stories.

  • Created by Julia Samuels with 20 Stories High Young Actors Company
  • Directed by Julia Samuels

Young people from the award-winning 20 Stories High tell each other's true stories straight from their MP3 players. As they hear the words in their headphones, the performers deliver line for line to the audience what they are hearing - live.

Delivered with unflinching honesty, this group of teenagers discusses religion, sex, race, friendship and family. Boys and girls play each other and cultural identity is swapped, revealing challenging and insightful perspectives.

With live music, beat-boxing and projection, this is a distinctive and unique new play from one of the UK's top theatre companies for young adult audiences.
