2016 sees the National Theatre Connections Festival mark its 21st year. To celebrate, they have selected 12 plays from previous years and 500 youth theatres and school groups to perform, involving more young people than ever in making theatre.
The People’s Theatre are delighted to have their talented Young People’s Theatre involved and proud to see them tackling such a challenging play. Simon Armitage is Professor of Poetry at the University of Sheffield and the University of Oxford, so it is no surprise that his drama is as lyrical as it is beautiful and unusual.
