More Information on New Views – Taster Session
Come along to a free taster session to learn more about New Views.
New Views is the country’s largest playwrighting programme for 14-19 year olds at Leeds Playhouse in partnership with the National Theatre.
New Views is a group that meets regularly to learn about writing scripts for live performance. Everyone will be supported to write their own 30 minute play that could be performed at the National Theatre in London with a professional cast and crew. The group explores writing dramatic stories and characters and is friendly and supportive. We read plays together, write together and explore big questions about the world we live in.
Interested? Join us for a free taster session to find out more.

A signed performance is the usual full production using either the creative use of sign integrated into the performance or a British Sign Language Interpreter on stage interpreting the show for D/deaf attendees.Audio Described

The theatre experience is enhanced for people living with dementia and their supporters, with adaptations to front of house service, the show and pre-show information packs.

Parent & Baby Performance
A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.
