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 Second Woman' - One Woman. One Scene. One Hundred Men. One Electrifying 24-Hour Performance.

Ticket holders for The Second Woman will be contacted within the next seven days via email by the Young Vic Welcome Team with information about processing exchanges or credit notes. Please bear with the our small but brilliant team as they assist with this – they are currently processing a huge volume of enquiries, working remotely during what is an unprecedented time. In order to manage this process as efficiently as possible for everyone, the team kindly request ticket holders wait for the YV to be in touch directly with them.

We look forward to the return of LIFT Festival in 2021!
