A note from our Artistic Director David Lan

"Horizons is the Young Vic’s response to the world as it is now. People in distress need help and they need to be heard. We want to provide a powerful means for audiences at home and abroad to connect with the political, social and human realities refugees face. These are the central stories of our age. We are thrilled to welcome Good Chance to our home on The Cut as an associate company.  We strongly support the inspirational work of the Joes and their team. We are extremely pleased to be recognized by City of Sanctuary with an award for our commitment to raising awareness of the plight of refugees."
