The Kings Youth Theatre National Theatre Connections 2013 Mobile Phone Show by Jim Cartwright National Theatre Connections is a national festival of new writing and young theatre making. The concept is simple - exciting new plays, commissioned by the National Theatre are performed by youth theatre groups across the UK, with professional support from the NT and its Partner Theatres. Mobile Phone Show - A communication cacophony. A poetic montage of styles. A fully charged up chorus line of boisterous, surreal, touching, comic chaos in a rhapsody of rap, text, tweet and gabble.
