Tales from the MP3
Young people from award-winning 20 Stories High told each other’s true stories straight from their MP3 players in this unique play featuring live music, poetry and beatboxing.
No stone was left unturned: with unflinching honesty they discussed religion, sex, race, friendship and family. Boys and girls played each other and cultural identity was swapped, revealing challenging and insightful perspectives.
Tales from the MP3 was a completely unique, new play from one of the UK’s top theatre companies for young audiences.
20 Stories High are two-times winners of the Brian Way Award (for the UK’s best new play for young people) 2010 & 2011, and winner of the Writers Guild of Great Britain Award for best play for young people 2013.
