The Young Critics’ Panel returns to Dublin Theatre Festival for a twelfth year.
One of NAYD’s most popular programmes, it is open to youth theatre members who are interested in watching theatre and discovering how and why theatre is made.
After a nationwide selection process, the Young Critics learn how to critically discuss, analyse and review theatre.
Supported over a six-month period, the 16 participants see quality productions while developing their critical skills in a safe and encouraging atmosphere.
During this year’s festival, they will see a number of national and international productions.
You are invited to hear them discuss their findings in a public forum, chaired by Dr. Karen Fricker.

Presented in association with NAYD: The National Association for Youth Drama
