Shakespeare's Young Ones

Having introduced new blood to the West End for the last fifty-seven years, the National Youth Theatre is an arts organisation that trains and showcases talented young people between 14-25 years old, in the world of acting. For its West End season, they will be performing three plays at the Ambassadors Theatre between the 23rd September - 29th November.

With fresh faces comes fresh ideas. For just 10-12 you can see Shakespeare re-imagined and politics uprooted in Romeo & Juliet, The Prince of Denmark, and Tory Boyz.

The tragic lovebirds, Romeo and Juliet, are transported to the 1980s, during the New Wave era. With an economic recession and youth unemployment on the rise, these two teenagers have more to worry about than just a family feud.

As for Prince Hamlet, we will see the story before his father's murder. Witness a blossoming teenage romance between the young prince and sweet Ophelia as they rebel against the ideals of their parents.

An update of James Graham's hit script, The House, brings an explosive political comedy that delves behind the scenes of power in Westminster.
