At a time when practical drama in a covid world is being limited and young performers are left questioning the future of their subject and passion, it’s more important than ever to celebrate new playwriting and explore the themes and issues relevant to young people today through the power of drama. Join us over @Methuen Drama Twitter and sign up to our Bloomsbury English and Drama for Schools newsletters from Monday 23rd to Friday 27th November to celebrate drama and playwriting with us as we explore our Plays for Young People series.
Our Methuen Drama Plays for Young People series offers new plays written specifically for young people aged between 14-18 to discover, explore and perform.
During our celebration week, you’ll hear from our wonderful playwrights talking about their inspiration behind the plays’ stories, read some sneak preview extracts from our new play collection Positive Stories for Negative Times, and we’ll also be giving one lucky reader a new play bundle for their class.
One question remains, which plays will you choose to discover with your students this term?
