National Theatre Connections 2017

The National Theatre Connections festival is a celebration of young people, theatre-making and the importance of access to the arts.

Each year the NT commissions 10 new plays for young people to perform, bringing together some of the most exciting writers with the theatremakers of tomorrow. Royal & Derngate hosts one of the 29 local festivals that take place across the country.

Connections is an unforgettable feast of theatre made by and for young people.
