York Theatre Royal exists to bring delight and fulfilment to the people of York and beyond by offering a rich and diverse programme of creative activity. We are ambitious. We are sturdy. We celebrate the city’s diversity; it makes us bloom We are ambassadors for York. We are welcoming. We are creative in every context. We pull together. We excel in every area. Come inside. See it live. Imagine yourself differently.
York Theatre Royal’s Connections festival runs in our 100 seat Studio theatre, which is configured in thrust. Midweek we run two companies per day, with both companies doing their tech and having a workshop, followed by performing and watching each other’s performance in the evening. A weekend works much the same way with up to three companies per day, except each company does their tech, followed directly by their performance. Each company does a workshop and has the opportunity to watch all the other shows that day.
