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.

"You don’t know anything except what’s there for you to see. An act. Not the pure heart, the pumping black heart."

Lula and Clay meet on the subway on an oppressively hot New York day. Flirtation and conversation quickly turn to violent attraction. As the train ride comes to an explosive end, who will make it out unscathed?

Dutchman exposes the traumatic black experience and the reality of modern race relations. Amiri Baraka’s cry of rage, written in 1964, is as crucial today as when it was first performed to critical acclaim off Broadway.

Directed by Ola Ince, winner of a 2016 Genesis Future Directors Award.

"Dutchman is designed to shock – its basic idea, its language and its murderous rage" – The New York Times

"Reading Baraka’s script today is like watching an expert butcher at his bloody chopping block." - The New Yorker

Dutchman is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
