A Series of Contemporary, Urban Monologues

Inside every HEAD lies a secret, a story waiting to unravel…

20 Stories High Young Actors Company offers insight into the lives of Liverpool’s young people with HEADZ: a series of gritty, challenging and humorous contemporary urban monologues that don’t pull any punches.

Catch three new stories from the collection as they tour the UK this autumn.


Lola loves to smoke ganja, and she’s not the only one – so do all of her mates, her little brother and even her Mum! But when she decides to get an ounce for her 18th birthday, things don’t go quite the way she expected.


Jenna is 19, she is young single and free, and her favourite hobby is making dates on Tinder. But after endless arguments with her Dad about her lifestyle choices she decides to pack her bags and leave home for good.


Jonno has been sleeping rough for over a year. And even though things are hard, he always tries to stay positive. So when he gets an offer from a group of strangers to go and work on farm he thinks all his Christmases have come at once. But is this invitation to good to be true?

Touring to a range of community venues from 3 October – public performances are listed below.
