Work With Us

A Younger Theatre is always looking for writers to contribute to our growing website. All writing roles are on a voluntary basis. AYT has historically been London-centric, but we’re actively looking for writers beyond London to expand our coverage. We are also keen to ensure that our writing team is representative of the society that we live in and so, we particularly welcome applications from people of colour, people with disabilities and the LGBTQ+ community.
