Rush | Submissions Open

National Youth Theatre presents

A showcase of some of Britain’s best young black talent

This October to mark Black History Month National Youth Theatre is hosting a cabaret style scratch night at our Holloway Road space, curated by NYT Member Shakira Newton, with pieces performed, written or created by black NYT Members. 

Interested in taking part? Submissions are currently open. Whether you’ve written your own play and want a chance to see part it performed, got a spoken word piece or song you’d like to share, or want to perform a monologue or duologue (either original or pre-published) - get involved. 

Submissions do not need to be specifically about race and/or culture but of course these are encouraged. 

If you are interested in being a part of this show and are fully available on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th October 2019 please apply via the Members' Board. 

Got any questions? Email

Whilst all will be welcome to attend the performance, please note submissions are only open to black NYT Members
