Looking for relief from boredom and a chance to get off the wing, seven young fathers in prison sign-up for an education programme. They try to use the workshops to settle scores and to rise up the prison pecking order. But they’re confronted with more than they’d bargained for, as they face up to their relationships with their children and their own fathers. Self-deceptions, vulnerabilities, and failed hopes and dreams are revealed, unleashing anger and violence that the workshop leaders struggle to contain.

'A compelling group portrait of seven frustrated – not to mention frustrating – young men in prison... as they try to settle to the daily group task of exploring what fatherhood means to them.'  Evening Standard

What happens when you're in a hole? What happens when that hole's inside you? What do you do to fill it, to make yourself feel whole?

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

Three teenagers: … So that’s our story and we really want to tell it... and we want to act in it as well, and play ourselves… cos actors wouldn’t really be as convincing as us…

20 Stories High: It’s a very moving story… but we’re really busy at the moment and also, to be honest, you’re not really actors.

Three teenagers: But we really want to tell our story… it says on your website that  “Everybody has a story to tell… and their own way of telling it…”

20 Stories High: …well, come back in a year, when we’re less busy, and let’s talk…

One Year Later… We made the play with them… WHOLE
