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.

The Clare

Time passes like treacle over oranges right now and not like water over rocks

The Small One has a family, but it’s not his family. He has a home, but it’s not his home.

The Big One has just arrived, placed in the room with another ‘brown face’ but this is not the face of his brother, it is the face of his enemy.

When you have experienced war, you pick your battles. They roll over and go to sleep.

Freedom Project brings together the UK’s first two Theatres of Sanctuary, Leeds Playhouse and the Young Vic, in this collaboration between the venues and their local communities. Written with young refugees and asylum seekers living in London and Leeds, this poignant story welcomes you to explore what it means to be free in this country.

FREE tickets for Freedom Project will be made available for local participants from Southwark and Lambeth. For more information on how to access these performances if you are from the local area, please contact participation@youngvic.org
