As the Old Vic Theatre celebrates its new Artistic Director in Matthew Warchus, audiences can look forward to an array of shows as part of his inaugural season, including this new play from Tamsin Oglesby, Future Conditional, which appears from September 2015.

Exploring the education system and the means through which great changes must be made, Future Conditional will be a poignant look at an important topic. With Warchus himself directing, comedian Rob Brydon will take to the stage in a lead role and a wealth of young stars in the making will be walking the boards.

The education system is something that is regularly at the forefront of great debate and with this in mind a lot of thought goes into the changes that it requires. Future Conditional looks at this through a number of angles, with characters of various ages and background explored onstage. Amongst them is Alia, a schoolgirl from Afghanistan who has her own ideas as she joins the Education Research Board. However, her young status will make it difficult for her voice to be heard and as a result those around her will not be prepared for her radical views.

Rob Brydon, of course, is a well known comic whose work ranges from television – such as The Trip and The Trip In Italy – to the stage. He is soon set to appear in The Painkiller with Kenneth Branagh as part of the latter’s residency at the Garrick Theatre, whilst previous credits have included his solo show at the Apollo Theatre in 2009.

In a year that also sees the likes of The Hairy Ape and Dr Seuss’s The Lorax appear, Future Conditional runs at the Old Vic Theatre from 10th September 2015 (previews from 1st September 2015).
