We are excited to announce that Young and Talented will be taking part in NT Connections this year. Now in its 22nd year it is the biggest Youth Theatre Festival in the world. Young people aged between 13-19, all over the United Kingdom will be taking part. The best productions will be invited to perform at the National Theatre in London.
There was a wonderful selection of plays we were able to pitch for and we were chosen to perform Zero for The Young Dudes! by Alistair McDowall. The play is set in a strange holiday camp where the participants are plotting a revolution, or maybe it has already happened. It is an exciting, dark and fast paced work taking place over the course of one day.
Award winning director and tutor for Young and Talented, Roy Alexander Weise will be directing Zero assisted by Catherine Palmer and the rest of our fantastic team at Broadway Barking. Zero for The Young Dudes will take place as part of the NT Connections festival on the main stage at the Soho Theatre in the heart of London. We are looking forward to supporting and seeing what the team creates and we will be keeping you all updated here.
