We have three groups for 14-18s. Each one works closely with our team of writers, developing and performing new plays at venues such as the Traverse Theatre and the Scottish Storytelling Centre. This group is taking the theme of The Journey, and is devising a new piece of theatre. Crossing was performed as a scratch performance as part of Emergence in the Chrysalis Festival in November 2016. The group are now developing Crossing to become a full scale production in June 2017, see below for more details.
