20 Stories High make theatre with young people from excluded communities, emerging and world-class artists to tell stories that are… gritty, jumping, melodic, rebellious, contemporary, mashed-up, authentic, original, visual, challenging, lyrical, tender, anarchic, diverse, surprising, booming, political, funny, collaborative… and heart-felt. 


We bring young people into theatre venues and go out into their communities. We hail from Liverpool, but our reach is international. We believe everybody’s got a story to tell...and their own way of telling it...

Founded in 2006, 20 Stories High has established itself as one of the leading young people’s theatre companies nationally, and has won a series of prestigious awards and commissions. 20 Stories High tours to theatres, schools venues and community spaces and run a range of participatory projects.

In the film below, join director Nathan Powell and the team at 20 Stories High as they reflect back on the impact of having a Trainee Artistic Director for two years.
