Youth Theare Plus: National Theatre Connections

National Theatre Connections 2017

Connections is the National Theatre’s nationwide youth theatre festival. Connections celebrates great new writing for the stage offers a unique opportunity for youth theatres and school theatre groups to stage new plays written for young people by some of theatre’s most exciting playwrights, and to perform in leading theatres across the UK.

Theatre Royal Stratford East will host a festival involving 10 groups of talented young people both on and off stage, who will inspire and entertain audiences with plays for and about young people that are current, challenging and resonant.

Connections gives young people experience of professional theatre-making. Their experience mirrors that of a company producing a new play in any theatre in the country. Each year we are thrilled by the skill, creativity, commitment and passion that go into each production that we showcase on our main stage here at Theatre Royal Stratford East.
