NT Connections is the National Theatre’s nationwide youth theatre festival. Each year it offers a unique opportunity for youth theatres and school theatre groups to stage new plays written for young people by some of theatre’s most exciting playwrights, and to perform in leading theatres across the UK.

In 2019 they were again one of only ten groups selected to perform at the National Theatre, on the Dorfman Stage, with their production of Ageless.
