National Theatre Connections at the Bush Theatre. New plays performed by young people from London.

Each year the National Theatre invites ten writers to create new plays for young people to perform. This spring 260 youth theatre companies will present the premieres of these plays in venues from Inverness to Cornwall and Belfast to Norfolk. Each company will also perform at one of 27 Connections festivals in professional theatres across the country, and ten companies will go on to perform at the National Theatre.
