Invicta will be presenting “The Wardrobe” by Sam Holcroft as part of the National Theatre Connections Festival. Rehearsals have been taking place all term. Students will have the opportunity to perform for friends and family at Invicta on Saturday, 8 March before taking the play to The Marlowe in Canterbury on Sunday, 11 May.
Each year, the National Theatre invites ten writers to create new plays for young people to perform. This spring 230 youth theatre companies will present the premieres of these plays in venues from Scotland to Cornwall and Northern Ireland to Norfolk. Each company will also perform at one of 26 Connections Festivals in professional theatres across the country, and ten companies will go on to perform at the National Theatre. Connections celebrates great new writing for the stage – and the energy, commitment and talent of young theatre-makers.
