National Theatre Connections
Generations to come will view this as the moment that the curse of ageing was removed and the world was able to look to tomorrow without the fear of a failing mind or body.
In a not too distant future, Temples pharmaceutical corporation has quite literally changed the face of ageing.
Their miracle drug keeps its users looking perpetually teenage. With an ever-youthful population, how can society support those who are genuinely young?
The Orange Tree Young Company appear in a play which questions what it means to be young and the ways in which generations collide.
Each year the National Theatre commissions ten new plays for young people to perform for Connections, bringing together some of the UK's most exciting writers with the theatre-makers of tomorrow.
300 youth theatre companies and over 6,000 young people from every corner of the UK are producing a Connections play this year.
