A Statement from the Young Vic - 20 March 2020

Following UK government advice, we have now made the difficult decision to cancel our current production of Nora and postpone our upcoming productions of Orfeus and Conundrum. LIFT Festival has also cancelled their 2020 festival, which includes our co-production of The Second Woman.

We ask that you please bear with our small but brilliant Welcome Team as they deal with a huge number of ticket holders for the above shows.

As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a substantial portion of our income, and the insecurity ahead is a huge worry for those who work for and with us, as it is for the theatre sector as a whole. Therefore - if you can afford to - please consider donating the price of your ticket, or another amount however large or small, to the Young Vic.

A Young Vic Taking Part project


A year-long project with Blackfriars Settlement, Certitude and Thames Reach

Performances at the Young Vic in November 2020. 

A year-long community project with Blackfriars Settlement, Certitude and Thames Reach.

Beginning in November 2019, Young Vic Taking Part will collaborate with Blackfriars Settlement, Certitude and Thames Reach, three extraordinary community organisations working in Lambeth and Southwark, for an entire year to foster in-depth creative relationships within the community. 

Each of our three partner organisations will work with a director and writer, focusing on enhancing creative skills with a view to building a community company, to develop three new plays centring around the themes of Home, Heritage & History, with a particular focus on the boroughs the shows will be created in. The TWENTY TWENTY initiative will conclude with productions of the three new plays performed by the community companies at the Young Vic in November 2020. 

Blackfriars Settlement, a Southwark-based charity which provides a range of services to improve the health and well-being of some of the poorest and most marginalised and socially isolated members of their community, is partnered with director Jade Lewis (Astrobabies, Superhoe) and writer Tolani Shoneye (My White Best Friend). 

Certitude, a leading provider of support to people who have learning disabilities, autism, mental health support needs and their families and carers, is partnered with director Audrey Sheffield (We Too Are Giants) and writer Nessah Muthy (Small Wonders). 

Thames Reach, a charity based in London supporting people facing homelessness through prevention, intervention and recovery, is partnered with director Milli Bhatia (seven methods of killing kylie jenner, Dismantle This Room) and writer Jasmine Lee Jones (seven methods of killing kylie jenner, Curious…).
