YOUNG performers will showcase their talents in Sheffield when the National Theatre Connections festival comes to town.

The festival, which runs from tomorrow until March 28, is a celebration of new writing and talented young theatre-makers.

Each year the National Theatre asks 10 writers to create new plays for the project which are performed by young theatre companies across the country, with the help of industry professionals.

Sheffield Theatres will be showing eight of the plays performed by 14 Yorkshire based theatre groups whose members are aged between 13 and 19.
