Just So Stories Review

There are any number of shows at the Fringe designed specifically for children, but very few are performed by young people themselves. Newbury Youth Theatre (NYT), founded over 28 years ago for young people aged between 14 and 21 years, returns to the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe for the 16th consecutive year.
