Whole

About

What happens when you're in a hole?

What happens when that hole's inside you?

What do you fill it with to make yourself feel whole?

Last year, 3 teenagers emailed 20 Stories High to ask if they could make a play about their friend Holly. This is how it unravelled…

Teenagers: …So that’s our story and we really want to tell it... and we want to play ourselves… cos actors wouldn’t really be as convincing as us…

20SH: It’s an amazing story… but we’ve got loads on at the moment…we’re really sorry

Teenagers: But we really want to tell our story… it says on your website that “Everybody’s got a story to tell… and their own way of telling it…”

20SH: OK… well... come back in a year… and let’s talk…

One Year Later… This is the play we made with them… Whole
