Connections 2017

Greater Manchester’s youth theatres, schools and colleges perform at HOME in the National Theatre’s Connections festival, a celebration of young people, theatre-making and the importance of access to the arts.

Each year the National Theatre commissions ten new plays for young people to perform, bringing together some of the most exciting writers with the theatre-makers of tomorrow.

This year, we’re delighted to welcome young performers from Stockport Academy, CAM Theatre Company, Burnage Academy for Boys, St Monica’s Theatre Company, Droylsden Academy’s No Limits, Langley Theatre Workshop, The Blue Coat School and CYA @ HOME.
