Young Critics

Our pilot Young Critics group is made up of nine young people aged 17 – 24 who will be working with us over the next six months to produce responses to theatre both here at the Almeida and across London. As well as having the opportunity to watch a huge variety of theatre, they’ll develop the skills to engage with the work produced on stage more rigorously.

They will have a chance to explore different journalistic styles from formal written reviews, podcasts, blogging and filmed interviews in order to capture their responses.

At the end of their time with us, we hope that the young critics will continue to engage with theatres independently, with the knowledge of how to access tickets aimed at young audiences and to have made long lasting connections with peers and theatre professionals.
