We’re over the moon to have an incredible nine Theatre Centre productions featured in Aurora Metro Books’ 50 Best Plays for Young Audiences, celebrating the pioneers who helped established and nurture Theatre for Young Audiences.

The book, edited by Vicky Ireland and Paul Harman, charts over fifty years of theatre dedicated to children and young people and includes detailed listings of the most influential work in this field.
