National Theatre Connections sees students from throughout the country perform one of 10 plays commissioned for the showcase. A representative from the National Theatre watches every performance. The representative then selects one version of each play for a performance at the National Theatre in London, during the summer.

ChaosSpeaking on the competition and students, Barton Peveril Subject Leader of Performing Arts Steven Wilde said: “The students have explored and developed the characters and scenes themselves. The quality of their work is a testament to how hard they have worked and how much they have learned during their time at Barton Peveril.”
