After a trip to the planetarium, the universe starts to wobble for a group of young people in Liverpool. Ruby and her gang start to experiment with teleportation… Jason is feeling so small that he’s starting to become invisible…and Abdul has to choose between Nigeria and his one true love… Do the answers lie in the stars?
The Universe and Me is the latest production from city theatre group 20 Stories High, and their youth theatre will be performing at the Black-E this week (July 19 and 20) before taking the show out on tour to the Truth About Youth festival at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre, where they will be performing to young people from all over the UK.
The play was created by the youth theatre with 20 Stories High co-artistic director Keith Saha, spoken word artist Visceral and digital artist Sam Meech. The team say they are embarking on a new, ground-breaking artistic journey fusing digital artistry, spoken-word and hip–hop.
