Nu: Me

Welcome to the NU:ME

Over the past year, 20 Stories High Youth Theatre have kept creativity alive. In loads of different ways in loads of different spaces. A lot of time on Zoom, a few precious moments inside a rehearsal room, and more recently a decent amount of time in the lovely Toxteth TV Garden.

We’ve been playing games, singing songs, writing poetry, improvising, recording documentary verbatim theatre, creating characters through artwork and playwriting.

Over the past 2 months we have written monologues under the banner of the NU:ME. 

A range of characters that have all undergone a positive change and discovered something new about themselves after experiencing some sort of challenge.

Some of these stories are based on real experiences, others are fictional or semi-fictional, but all of them come from a real place.

We know the world is a challenging place at the moment, and we haven’t always been able to be at every rehearsal, and as you will see the kind of theatre we are making has been adapted. 

But being in a creative space is something that has kept us all going and something that gives us hope for the future. So tonight, we want to share some of that hope with you.
