Last year’s winners, Unmasked Theatre, said:

‘From start to finish the whole experience of being involved in IYAF in 2018 was really quite magical. The staff were incredibly friendly, supportive and genuinely interested in the work of our company.

To get to perform in such a prestigious and beautiful venue as The Rose was very special, and looks phenomenal on our company CV. Even though we have shelved our Antony and Cleopatra project for the time being, we’re in great conversation with the festival and the encouragement and support we have received has been both a humbling and exciting for our future endeavours.

Louise, Charlotte and the rest of the IYAF team have provided the most invaluable platform for young creative voices – our creative voices, and with that, we have felt heard.’
