As the theatre industry opens up again and we’re all feeling a bit more hopeful, the team at AYT are working harder than ever to help change the face of theatre. We want to see more marginalised voices speaking their truths, those at the ‘top’ called out for mistreatment… We want to see massive shifts happen in the industry and we want to be the company behind them. That’s where you come in.

Join our feature writing team

We’re actively looking for BIPOC writers to join our pool of feature writers. If you identify as a Black, Indigenous, or as a Person of Colour and love the theatre, we would love to hear from you. In return, we are offering mentorship with our new outreach officer, Lauryn, who can offer support and guidance in developing your ideas and articles, in regular meetings. You don’t have to have any experience writing to apply, just something to say!

Our features, opinion and first-person stories are a big part of what makes AYT unique. They’re a chance for people like you to express your frustrations about the theatre industry or to give advice to other young creatives. They’re also a chance for budding journalists to hone their craft by working with experienced editors, gaining invaluable advice on their work, learning interview and pitching techniques and much much more.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, then fill in these application forms (features), (opinion/ first-person) and send to Sam on

Join our team of reviewers

We’re also on the lookout for more critics to join the writing team and specifically from areas outside of London. Because not everything happens in the big smoke, right? Do you have a passion for theatre, a keen eye for detail? Are you a bit bored of seeing the same old ‘traditional’ reviews and want to shake things up a bit?
