The Young Vic is a theatre for everyone but especially for a younger audience.
It opened on 11th September 1970 as a place in which younger directors, designers, actors, writers and technicians could present the great works of the world repertoire, classics and, from time to time, new plays in exciting productions and at the lowest possible seat prices.
These original ideas remain as visionary, as powerful and as creative as ever.
Over the last thirty years, the company has established a powerful reputation in this country and abroad.
Recently the Young Vic has begun to be recognised as the major theatre in this country in which young directors can develop and practice their art.
