NT Connections Festival - Day 3
Best Theatre Arts
NT Connections celebrates new writing for young people, performed by young people as part of the National Theatre’s nationwide festival programme.
Tonight's performances are:
By Phoebe Eclair Powell | Performed by Best Theatre Arts
When the Thames bursts its banks and submerges London, the north and the south of the city become separated. Myths abound about ‘the other side’ – is it really better? Four sets of teenagers ignore the risks of the treacherous crossing, to find out whether the other side is all it’s cracked up to be. Meanwhile a chorus of drowned commuters from the Circle Line conjure memories of the past. These Bridges looks at a fearful future and seeks to show that if we stick together, we may just survive it all.
The Changing Room
By Chris Bush | Performed by The Playing Space
A lyrical piece about existing on the cusp of growing up. Are we teenagers? Are we children? What are we? It's about bodies in flux and perspectives shifting; knowing change is coming but not what that change will look like.
Set in and around a swimming pool, The Changing Room follows a group of teens full of excitement, impatience and uncertainty, each with their own secret worries and desires for what comes next.
