Connections Festival 2022

Connections Festival 2022

Connections is the National Theatre's annual, nationwide youth theatre festival. The programme has been established for 27 years with a celebrated history of championing the talent of young people from across the UK.

Bringing together the work of leading playwrights, participants rehearse and perform one of 10 new plays written specifically for the Connections Festival. Every company taking part each year will perform a home performance at their own venue, and are then invited to perform on their Partner Theatre stage during Partner Theatre festival season (March – May 2022).

The National Theatre Connections festival 2022 will run from 28 June – 2 July 2022. To book your tickets, please click here
