NT Connections 2014 at The Lyceum Theatre

NT Connections 2014

National Theatre Connections at Lyceum Theatre
New plays performed by young people from Scotland

Connections is the National Theatre’s annual festival of new plays for youth theatres and schools. The 2012/13 Connections involved:

10 Writers
230 Youth Theatre Companies
5,000 Young People
684 Performances
26 Partner Theatres
25,000 Audience Members

Connections gives young people experience of professional theatre-making. Their experience mirrors that of a company producing a new play in any theatre in the country. They create marketing campaigns, design sets and costumes, operate lighting and sound boards, stage-manage their performances. In 2013, each company had the experience of performing in a leading regional theatre, at one of the Connections festivals around the country.

Connections aims to:

  • inspire 13-19 year olds with high-quality new playwriting 
  • give companies the knowledge, skills and confidence to bring the plays to life
  • involve a wide range of young companies, giving additional support where needed
  • encourage young people to get involved in all aspects of theatre making

Join us for NT Connections 2014 at The Lyceum.
