Bringing no holds barred reviews, truths, and discussions from the front line of British Theatre. A Younger Theatre brings the voice of the next generation to the forefront, providing a unique look at the theatre that is shaping, changing and being debated by the younger generation of Theatre Makers.

Founded as a blog in 2009 by Theatre Producer, Jake Orr, A Younger Theatre is now run by Writer, Samuel Sims and has grown to become a highly regarded publication and resource for emerging creatives.

At the heart of our work is a platform for those who are often unheard. We champion the emerging generation. We celebrate excellence and pride ourselves on professionalism, while also leaving room for risk, failure and learning.
