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.
