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.
