Arsehammers (Stage2 version, large cast) is about a boy's relationship with his grandfather, who is suffering from Alzheimer's (or Arsehammers , as the boy hears it). He believes his grandad to have superpowers on account of his routine disappearances. A brilliant tale of living with, and understanding, mental illness. It has been reimagined for a cast of around 20. The Year of the Monkey (Stage2 version, large cast) shows a mother dreaming of injecting some excitement into her humdrum life. The play has been revised the play for around 25 young people. Hard Working Families (original version, large cast), which hasn't previously been published, is a satirical play with music that exposes the true impact that earning a living has on young people in modern-day society. It is a response to politicians' visions of 'ordinary people', set against the reality of earning a living and the way this impacts on young people's lives. It can be performed by a cast of up to 50.

They both live on the same council estate but Nikki's day to day life is much different to her new friend's, who has just moved in across the street. As Samson and his family experience more and more horrific abuse at... the hands of the community, Nikki sees first hand how society's ingrained suspicion and distrust can destroy the lives of anyone deemed to be 'different'.

With caring for her younger brothers and balancing her school work with a job her family desperately needs her to keep, what will happen when Kelsey continues to put everyone else ahead of her own needs? With bracing insight into the worlds of two girls with very different problems, Keith Saha's Black and She's Leaving Home force the issues of modern Britain to take centre stage. This edition was published to coincide with 20 Stories High's national tour of Black in 2017.
