In 2018 we launched a new Inclusivity Programme designed to make National Youth Theatre more accessible to disabled and neuro diverse young people, in partnership with Diverse City and Highshore School in Southwark. The project follows previous inclusion work at NYT, including the 2012 Paralympic Team Welcome Ceremonies. We’ve also commissioned a series of productions exploring themes with disability at their core, directly creating lead roles for cast members with disability. These shows by Nessah Muthy and Athena Stevens will be developed in 2019 ahead of R&D productions in 2020.
