National Theatre Connections: New plays performed by young people
Sunday 9 June 2013
Ten new plays for young people to perform.
This year the plays are angelic, dangerous, furtive, hilarious, historical, provocative, revolutionary, surprising, transforming, tuneful.
Connections offers you a unique opportunity to produce one of ten plays especially written for young performers written by leading playwrights and support to transfer to a leading regional theatre.
Connections provides a wide variety of learning opportunities for the young people involved. They will have opportunities not only to perform, but also to be involved in the whole theatre-making process. Last year young people took on a variety of backstage roles – operating the lights and sound and undertaking stage management responsibilities.
Connections 2014 will allow you to nurture aspiring youth talent as well as inspire and entertain audiences – with new plays, for and about young people, that are current, challenging and relevant.
