“In 20 years of teaching, this ranks as probably the best experience that I have been able to offer such a massive number of students. We run trips but to have 300 in one day see this was immense.”
The Mohn Westlake Foundation supports the National Theatre's nationwide learning programmes for young people. Connections, Let's Play, New Views and Schools Touring all aim to make world-class theatre accessible to under 19 year olds wherever they are in the UK, with particular focus on areas of lowest engagement with the arts.
Last year, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time visited 76 schools and played to 13,341 students and teachers, some of whom were experiencing theatre for the first time.
“Like many other teens and many other people in our society I struggle a lot with my confidence and my motivation… Theatre has become a huge part of my life. Where once there was a time I found it a huge task to speak to people, I have now gained confidence in myself as a person..”Connections participant
