“The Heights” by Lisa McGee

“The Heights” by Lisa McGee (creator/writer of Derry Girls) 

This is a Mr. Sands Youth Theatre Bray production, as part of National Theatre Connections 2023.

Please note: This production uses strong language and has scenes depicting violence. 

This is a play about stories.

Lillie is a teenager who lives on the Heights Estate. A place where nothing ever happens, except in Lillie’s head. Lillie’s not like most people, definitely not. For starters, she never goes out, but sits in her bedroom window on the sixth floor of her tower block, watching the world and the people in it go by – though sometimes some of those same people enter her world. As she sits, she makes up stories. Some of these stories are sad, some are happy, some are funny, some are just wonderful, and some are just terrible.

This story is about Dara, who she watches from her window. It is about their brother Jimmy, and their gang. It’s about a gun they find. It is about Bizzy, who never puts her book down. It is about Fran and Ann, who she can see arguing in the building opposite. It is about Jacob, who no one ever truly knows.

But they’re just stories.

Aren’t they? 

This production is presented by Mr Sands Youth Theatre, Bray’s local Youth Theatre with an open door policy. We are always welcoming new members! 

Approx Duration: 1hr 10mins (no interval)
