Performed by Hatch Theatre Group as part of NT Connections 2024

April is always a particularly exciting time at Sherman Theatre. Once again, the Sherman will be taken over by youth theatre companies from across south Wales as we host the NT Connections Festival.

Theatre fans can feast on fresh new writing performed by bright young talent. The youth theatre companies themselves will have the opportunity to perform, learn new skills and make friends. Come down to the Sherman this spring and witness the future of theatre.
