National Theatre Connections is an annual festival which brings new
plays for young people to schools and youth theatres across the UK
and Ireland. Commissioning exciting work from leading playwrights,
the festival exposes actors aged 13-19 to the world of professional
theatre-making, giving them full control of a theatrical production
- from costume and set design to stage management and marketing
campaigns. NT Connections have published over 150 original plays
and regularly works with 500 theatre companies and 10,000 young
people each year. This anthology brings together 10 new plays by
some of the UK's most prolific and current writers and artists
alongside notes on each of the texts exploring performance for
schools and youth groups. Salt Life is never plain sailing, but
when a new government initiative comes into place offering young
people the chance to train and learn skills overseas, droves of
teens jump at the chance to secure their future. Once on board the
transport ship, the promises of the glossy advert seem a far cry
from what lies ahead. A play about generations, choices and hope.
Class It's school election time and while most of the school is
busy enjoying their lunch break, a deadlock is taking place amongst
the members of the school council. Bitter rivalries, secret
alliances and false promises are laid bare. As a ruthless battle
ensues, who will win and does anyone really care? A play about
politics, populism and the 'ping' of a text message. The Sad Club
This is a musical about depression and anxiety. It's a collection
of monologues, songs and duologues from all over time and space
exploring what about living in this world stops us from being happy
and how we might go about tackling those problems. Chaos A girl is
locked in a room. A boy brings another boy flowers. A girl has tied
herself to a railing. A boy doesn't know who he is. A girl worries
about impending catastrophe. A woman jumps in front of a train. A
boy's heart falls out his chest. A butterfly has a broken wing.
Stuff Vinny's organising a surprise birthday party for his mate,
Anita. It's not going well: his choice of venue is a bit misguided,
Anita's not keen on leaving the house, and everyone else has their
own stuff going on. Maybe a surprise party wasn't the best idea? A
play about trying (but not really managing) to help. Flesh A group
of teenagers wake up in a forest with no clue how they got there.
They find themselves separated into two different teams but have no
idea what game they are expected to play. With no food, no water
and seemingly no chance of escape, it's only a matter of time
before things start to get drastic. But whose side are people on
and how far will they go to survive? Ageless In a not too distant
future, Temples pharmaceutical corporation has quite literally
changed the face of ageing. Their miracle drug keeps its users
looking perpetually teenage. With an ever youthful population, how
can society support those who are genuinely young? The Small Hours
It's the middle of the night and Peebs and Epi are the only
students left at school over half-term. At the end of their night
out, former step-siblings Red and Jazz try to navigate their
reunion. With only a couple of hours until morning, Jaffa tries to
help Keesh finish an essay. As day breaks, Wolfie is getting up the
courage to confess a secret to VJ at a party. Their choices are
small yet momentous. The hours are small but feel very, very long.
And when the night finally ends, the future is waiting - all of it.
terra A group of classmates is torn apart by the opportunity to
perform their own dance. As they disagree and bicker, two distinct
physical groups emerge and separate into opposing teams. When a
strange outsider appears - out of step with everyone else - the
divide is disrupted. A contemporary narrative dance piece about
individuality, community and heritage. Variations Thirteen-year-old
Alice wishes her life was completely different. She wakes up one
morning to find that her life is different. In fact, it's so
different that all she wants to do is get back to normality. But
how does she do that?
