National Theatre Connections is a nationwide celebration of new writing and young theatre talent. The Theatre Royal Plymouth is one of 20 venues across the UK hosting a showcase festival of performances from local secondary schools and youth groups as part of Connections.
This year, the National Theatre has commissioned ten new plays with an international flavour. Written by some of the most exciting playwrights in the UK and beyond, these diverse stories range from the passionately political to the heart-warmingly funny.
