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.
Every year, we commission ten new plays for young people to perform, bringing together some of the UK's most exciting writers with the theatre-makers of tomorrow. We work with 300 youth companies and over 6,000 young people annually from every corner of the UK.
