Connections is the National Theatre‘s annual festival of new plays for youth theatres and schools.
Over the last 20 years the National Theatre has published more than 150 plays for young theatre companies to perform all over the UK. This year Curve Young Company will be producing one of these plays; Status Update by Tim Etchells, directed by John Berkavitch, Curve Youth Theatre Director.
We know facts. We know secrets. We have opinions, we have intuition and we have the stage. Status Update is an unflinching and funny catalogue of the things teenagers learn, believe and have sussed out about the world. From the ridiculous to the highly charged, all these truths and half-truths are laid bare before us, without the safety net of character or fiction.
