National Theatre’s Connections Festival is back and better than ever this Spring

Every year, National Theatre Connections commissions new plays for young people to perform. The programme brings together some of the UK’s most exciting writers with the theatre-makers of tomorrow. In 23/24, we are working with nearly 270 youth companies from every corner of the UK.

Connections is open to any company of young people aged 13-19. You can be a school, a youth theatre or voluntary organisation. You can have lots of experience staging plays or none at all. Whoever you are, your group can apply to be part of Connections.

This April, eight companies of young people will tread the boards at Nottingham Playhouse – This is set to be our most exciting festival yet. What better way to celebrate the power of live theatre?
