The Maria

Our friendship is… a light that never goes.
Our love is everlasting and ever reigning.

Grab your best bud and head to the Maria to celebrate your friendship with our new YV Unpacked production Love Reign. Written by Shereen Jasmin Phillips and directed by Stef O’Driscoll, YV Unpacked: Love Reign is a love letter to friendships, how we begin them, how we honour them and how we preserve them against all odds.

This exhilarating show encapsulates the joyful expression of friendship delicately underscored by a live soulful house soundtrack. This is theatre you can vibe to.

YV Unpacked: Love Reign will tour to venues in Lambeth and Southwark schools, women’s centres, community venues that assist people who experience homelessness, and similar locations in our local boroughs where theatre is not usually performed, from 4 -15 Oct. The show will then be performed in our Maria theatre from 18 - 23 Oct.

Show Running Time

1 hour and 20 minutes with no interval

What is YV Unpacked?

YV Unpacked was established in 2018 by Kwame Kwei-Armah when he became the Young Vic Artistic Director, developed to reach audiences who may find it more difficult to access theatre by taking professional work to them.

Where will the show tour?

Venues hosting YV Unpacked: Love Reign include Dunraven School, South Bank University Academy, Women in Prison (Beth Centre) at East Hill Baptist Church, Blackfriars Settlement and Certitude London in partnership with Portico Gallery, with more venues to be announced. At least 10% of tickets to the performance run in the Maria Theatre will be given free to schools, neighbours and early-career theatre makers.
