A Younger Theatre is an organisation committed to supporting and nurturing emerging creative talent in theatre and the arts. Founded in 2009 as a blog, A Younger Theatre has grown to become a publication, production company 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.
