The Changing Room

Tuesday 25 February 2020

New Vic Youth Theatre

Part of National Theatre Connections

By Chris Bush
Directed by Katherine Hughes

A lyrical piece about existing on the cusp of growing up.

Are we teenagers? Are we children? What are we?

It’s about bodies in flux and perspectives shifting; knowing change is coming, but not what that change will look like. Set in and around a swimming pool, The Changing Room follows a group of teens full of excitement, impatience and uncertainty, each with their own secret worries and desires for what comes next.

With a full young band and a large cast, the New Vic Youth Theatre tackle big questions such as “When are we ready to take the plunge into adulthood?”

For those who are, or who have ever been teenagers, this big joyful musical is performed by the New Vic Youth Theatre as part of National Theatre Connections.

Each year the National Theatre commissions ten new plays for young people to perform, 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.
