Young Vic 2017 season at a glance

Artistic Director David Lan on today’s announcement:
"Putting a season together is always a mixture of chance and intention.

My intention is always that the voices you hear at the Young Vic will be the most urgent, the most in need of being heard. Chance is that I happen to be in the right place at the right time to hear them.

Patterns emerge: in all the shows in this new season you’ll hear voices from the edge - refugees, the black working class, young gay women, young gay men – engaged voices raised in protest and in discovery.

The Jungle by Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson, the founders of Good Chance Theatre, tells the story of the refugee camp at Calais. It centres on the meeting of the Afghans, the Kurds, the Somalis, the Syrians with the UK volunteers, younger and older, who arrived in Calais to offer help. Directed by Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin, it’s a dark story told in a disarmingly light style. With Miriam Buether transforming our theatre into an Afghan Café, we are delighted to co-produce this with the National Theatre as part of our Horizons series of shows putting the experience of refugees at the forefront.

The first anyone in the UK heard of the now celebrated Tarell Alvin McCraney was our production of his first play The Brothers Size. An instant classic, winner of the Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright Award, we toured it to enormous success. A decade later, we’re reviving it for a new generation, this time in our Main House. As before, it’s a co-production with the Actors Touring Company, directed by Bijan Sheibani.

The Inheritance is a major new work by an exceptional young writer. Set in present-day New York City, two decades after the worst of the AIDS epidemic, it asks: ‘What do gay men hand down from one generation to the next? What do we learn from our past? How do we heal? How do we change?’ Hilarious and profound, in two parts presented over two evenings, it’s directed by Stephen Daldry and designed by Bob Crowley.

It was always obvious that the Young Vic is the natural London home for the phenomenon that is Fun Home. After five Tony Awards and a Broadway run, we’re delighted to welcome Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron’s ground-breaking and immensely enjoyable musical adaptation of Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel about growing up gay in a close complicated family. Sam Gold directs a UK cast.

My Name is Rachel Corrie was edited by Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner from Rachel Corrie’s diaries. This now famous account of one young woman’s opposition to the plight of the Palestinians is, sadly, as topical as ever. It’s directed by this year’s JMK Award winner Josh Roche.”

The Jungle
by Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson of Good Chance Theatre

Main House

10% of tickets will be offered to refugees

Europe’s largest unofficial refugee camp, the Calais “Jungle” became a temporary home for more than 10,000 people at its peak - many desperate to find a way to enter the UK.

When volunteers from the UK arrive to help, they’re shocked by the squalid conditions – but even more surprised by the thriving communities who’ve built a bustling city complete with cafes, libraries, mosques and schools. What impact do compassionate well-wishers truly have in a crisis like this? Is it possible that they’re only making things worse?

This vigorous and engaging new play written by the founders of Good Chance Theatre tells stories of loss, fear, community and hope in The Jungle.

Good Chance builds temporary theatres of hope promoting freedom of expression, creativity and dignity for eve-ryone. Founded by two British playwrights, Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson, Good Chance established its first temporary theatre space, an 11m geodesic dome, in the heart of the refugee and migrant camp in Calais in Sep-tember 2015. After seven months in Calais, the theatre travelled to London’s Southbank for a nine-day festival of introductions led by refugees in July 2016. At the start of 2017, Good Chance began working in Paris starting with a five-week residence at La Station, Gare de Mines, in collaboration with Collectif MU and Emmaüs Soli-darité. From here, the Good Chance dome travelled to the gardens of Théâtre de la Ville for the duration of the Chantiers d'Europe Festival. Good Chance is an Associate Company of the Young Vic Theatre and recipient of the Evening Standard Editor’s Award (2016), an Empty Space Peter Brook Award (2017), and was nominated for Index on Censorship, Freedom of Expression Award.

Stephen Daldry started his career at the Sheffield Crucible Theatre and directed extensively in Britain’s regional theatres.

He has also directed at the National Theatre, the Public Theatre in New York and transferred many productions both to Broadway and the West End.

Matthew Lopez’s new play in two parts is a panoramic view of gay life in New York City today, a generation after the AIDS crisis.

Of the fears, the activism, the new communities and the new kinds of isolation, what has survived? And what does it mean to the young who, over-flowing with life, are looking for love?

Real estate developers, actors, mothers and the destitute, all looking for the best way to live – socially, politically, morally, sexually – in the new realities of modern day America.

Matthew Lopez is the author of The Whipping Man (premiered at Luna Stage Company and New York premiere at Manhattan Theatre Club), one of the most widely-produced new American plays of the last decade.
