Each participating youth theatre then chose which play to rehearse and perform in the festival. The plays being performed at Theatre by the Lake are: The IT by Vivienne Franzmann, Tuesday by Alison Carr, Dungeness by Chris Thompson, A Series of Public Apologies by John Donnelly and Crusaders by Frances Poet.


Artistic Director of Theatre by the Lake, Liz Stevenson, said: “We are so excited to be a partner venue for this wonderful festival and celebration of young people’s creativity and can’t wait to welcome the participating youth theatres to TBTL. We are also very grateful to have

received an enhancement fund from the National Theatre to enable us to really make this as accessible as possible, as well as a brilliant experience for all the groups involved.”


The enhancement fund allocated by NT Connections to Theatre by the Lake is going towards workshops for each group, subsidised tickets, including groups who are interested in learning more about NT Connections and transport and food costs.


National Theatre Connections is one of the UK’s largest celebrations of youth theatre. Plays are commissioned for and about young people, from some of the best contemporary playwrights and performed by schools and youth theatres all over the UK and Ireland. Young people have the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of creating and staging the play, both on and off stage, from set design to costume, lighting and stage management.


In 2020, National Theatre Connections is working with up to 300 youth theatres and schools to stage ten newly commissioned plays, adding to over 150 plays the National Theatre have commissioned for young people since 1995. All the companies will transfer their production to one of 31 Connections Partner Theatres across the UK including Theatre by the Lake.


To see the groups perform at the festival, contact the Theatre by the Lake, Box Office, on 017687 74411, or visit www.theatrebythelake.com
