Everyone around the country has heard of the Old Vic amongst the wealth of London theatres on offer, but just up the road from this venue is another theatre that has a positive reputation for putting on unique and compelling stories.
This is the Young Vic on The Cut and was originally a part of the National Theatre before it became an independent company in the 1970s, with the venue itself emerging at the beginning of the same decade. Today this construction remains and it is often the home to some challenging plays, which they claim will force audiences to reinterpret their ideas about the world around them.
A long list of plays have appeared at the London theatre over the years, with plenty promised for the years ahead as well. Some of the highlights in recent years include “Vernon God Little” from February to March 2011, which focused on a school shooting in Texas and the boy wrongly-accused of carrying it out, and “The Glass Menagerie”, which appeared from November 2010 to January 2011. “The Glass Menagerie” is the semi-autobiographical piece from Tennessee Williams that focuses on a man attempting to live his life, supporting his overbearing family and struggling with his work at a factory.
Others to appear in recent times include “Terminus” by Mark O’Rowe, “I Am the Wind” by Jon Fosse and “My Dad’s a Birdman” by David Almond.
So there have been plenty of shows to emerge over the years and further productions that will take the Young Vic safely into the future. As a result expect audiences to continue to pick up theatre tickets to witness its acclaimed shows and expect some talented and versatile artists and performers to bring their work to its stage.
