New Views is the National Theatre's annual playwriting programme for young people aged 15-19. Each year hundreds of students from across the UK learn about playwriting from some of the finest writers in the business and write their own 30 minute plays, with one play chosen to be staged at the NT with a professional cast.
Arts Award and New Views have teamed up to show how young people taking part in the competition can work towards their Gold Arts Award. New Views offers opportunities for young people to extend their arts practice, work with professionals, experience events and workshops and learn about the wider sector. Our joint mapping resource gives more information.
