Delve deeper into what stimulates the artists behind this year’s festival with these fun, engaging discussions. Each lively session is chaired by a leading playwright or theatre-maker.

Let Them Lead the Way: from the evolution of youth theatre into brave new forms, to innovative plays written by, for and about young people, what does the Year of Young People 2018 mean for young(er) theatre-makers? Chaired by Jenny Knotts.
