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.

What does 'English' mean to you?

Is England amidst an identity crisis? Has English nationalism been weaponised by the far right? Is 'Englishness' about where you were born, where you live or how you feel? What place does art have in shaping our sense of national identity?

At a time when the national conversation can often be dominated by division, we asked artists from around the country to come together and ask themselves what Englishness is, and what it means to them.

THE FILMS

Fourteen theatre makers from across England were each commissioned to write a monologue about what Englishness means to them now. Seven of the monologues were filmed on location in the regions the writers are from, including Coventry, Halifax, Luton, the Peak District, Plymouth, Middlesbrough and London. The other seven films were filmed at the Young Vic over the course of a single day, performed by people from our local neighbourhood, in collaboration with the Young Vic’s Taking Part department.
