Keith Saha is a writer and Co-Artistic Director of 20 Stories High Theatre Company based in Liverpool.
For television he has recently shot a pilot for his own series LOOKED AFTER with Twelve Town and SKY based on his own and others experience of being in care. Also in development with WARP productions is his TV serial BLACK looking at the rise of racial violence.
Keith's new theatre projects include TOUCHY - a new piece of “gig theatre” commissioned by Wellcome Collection with Radio 4. And a new Hip Hop Puppetry piece within Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
Keith's writing is often researched and developed with culturally diverse working-class young adults and wider communities who have important stories to tell. He has focused on writing and developing a wide variety of plays using different forms – spoken word, verbatim theatre as well as pioneering the form of Hip-Hop Theatre with Puppetry and Mask.
In 2010, he was awarded The Brian Way Award for the UK’s Best New Play for Young People for his play Ghost Boy, a co-production with Contact and Birmingham Rep which championed this form. More recently his play The Broke ‘N’ Beat Collective won the young critics’ award at ON THE EDGE FESTIVAL 2016. His plays have been published by Methuen.
