Experience Opportunity

National Theatre Connections

Each year the National Theatre commissions ten new plays for young people to perform, bringing together some of the UK's most exciting writers with the theatre-makers of tomorrow.

Every year, 300 youth theatre companies and over 6,000 young people from every corner of the UK are producing a Connections play this year. This year we are adapting the Connections programme to be as flexible as possible, and to respond to the restrictions in place due to Covid-19.

Applications for 2021 are now open; the deadline is midday on Friday 2nd October.
