Positive Stories for Negative Times is a digital Youth Theatre project for 12-18 year olds, delivered by Aberdeen Performing Arts in partnership with Wonder Fools and Traverse Theatre. Held in April, this exciting project featured a series of brand new plays that were rehearsed and performed online. The national participatory project was coordinated by youth arts organisation Wonder Fools in response to the lack of physical spaces for young people to participate in physical activities because of the pandemic, and instead allows them to come together to make new work online.

Aberdeen Performing Arts worked with three groups of young people on three separate performances that were streamed from the 28 and 29 April.
