Young People

We work with young people aged 14-21 to explore every aspect of theatre making through courses, workshops and creative projects.  From playwriting and theatre making, to producing, and technical theatre there's something for you.  

Our free programmes run online and in-person, and particularly aim to support young people most impacted by the events of the last year. 

16-21: Writing for Theatre

Whether you’re totally new to playwriting or have many drafts in your drawer, this course will help you sharpen your ideas and turn them into theatre.

This FREE course for 16-21 year olds will be delivered online via Zoom.
