Some of the freshest and most relevant theatre being made today is when dynamic next-generation playwrights collaborate with young companies and drama schools. Making these plays available will continue to bring them to life in new and exciting ways. A brilliant initiative.
Sarah Frankcom, Artistic Director of Royal Exchange Theatre, and Director Designate of LAMDA
This unique and important initiative gives young theatre-makers access to the very best in new writing for younger companies to create productions of their own. It offers opportunities which ensure that the next generation are working with the best writers and ideas - and that this glorious work has as far a reach as possible.
Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director, Royal Court Theatre
These plays are as ambitious in their imaginative scope as they are in their cast size! Unseen communities are brought vividly to life, family bonds tighten or fracture, and institutions and attitudes at the core of our society are challenged in this brilliant collection of contemporary ensemble plays.
Rupert Goold, Artistic Director, Almeida Theatre
I'm a big fan of this initiative, and these works by current voices deserve to reach audiences far and wide. Great storytelling shouldn't go to waste.
Paul Roseby OBE, CEO and Artistic Director, National Youth Theatre of Great Britain
