National Theatre Connections 500 Festival

3 MAY 2016 — 7 MAY 2016

National Theatre Connections is a nationwide festival for young people aged 13-19 and companies from around the country take on 10 brand new plays, written by established writers and perform them at their home venue and at a partner theatre. This year is Connections’ 21st birthday, so to celebrate they have chosen a selection of plays from the past 21 years of Connections to form the festival programme.

We're delighted to be a Partner Theatre for the first time, hosting ten young companies. Click below to book for each play and find out more.
