Keith Saha is a writer and Co-CEO/Artistic Director of 20 Stories High Theatre Company based in Liverpool.

 

For television he has 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 is COOL BRITANNIA with Jude Law’s company RIFF RAFF.

 

Keith's recent projects include TOUCHY - a piece of “gig theatre” commissioned by Wellcome Collection, and he is currently developing a new Hip-Hop Theatre piece with deaf, neurodivergent and disabled artists with Graeae.

 

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 – rap, 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. His play The Broke ‘N’ Beat Collective won the young critics’ award at ON THE EDGE FESTIVAL 2016. In 2021 he was named as one of the STAGE 100 and also won the Achates Prize both recognising his doorstep theatre show KNOCKING ON made during lockdown, and more recently TOUCHY won an Offie/Oncom award for digital work also made during the pandemic.
