Matthew Warchus’s first season as Artistic Director of The Old Vic is now on SALE
The first three productions in Matthew Warchus’s inaugural season as Artstic Director of The Old Vic are now on sale. The much-anticipated season kicks off with Tamsin Oglesby’s new play Future Conditional, followed by Eugene O’Neill’s The Hairy Ape and The Lorax inspired by Dr. Seuss’s classic tale. Also coming in 2016, Ibsen’s The Master Builder starring Ralph Fiennes; Jekyll & Hyde, a new dance thriller by Drew McOnie; The Caretaker by Harold Pinter starring Timothy Spall; Groundhog Day with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin and book by Danny Rubin.
When the season was announced, Matthew Warchus, Artistic Director said “After 25 years of freelance directing I unexpectedly find myself running my favourite theatre in the world. My first season demonstrates our aim to present more productions per year, of wide-ranging work, in a ‘something for everyone’ approach which reflects my own eclectic tastes and love of this unique and uplifting art form. When Lilian Baylis ran The Old Vic she kept a sign over her desk which read “Dare, always dare!” Taking my cue from her, my goal is to programme invigorating seasons which are, by turns, surprising, smart, adventurous and fun. Come and join in.”
This much-anticipated season runs from 1 September 2015 with tickets from £35 (booking fee applies). Book now to avoid disappointment.
Future Conditional is Tamsin Oglesby’s bracingly topical and boisterously funny new play starring Rob Brydon and a cast of 23 young performers.
Future Conditional plays a limited season from 1 September 2015 until 3 October 2015 at the Old Vic theatre.
Richard Jones, a visionary of British theatre directs Eugene O’Neill’s timeless classic of class and identity. The Hairy Ape is a thought provoking, iconic piece of American drama.
The Hairy Ape plays a limited season from 17 October 2015 until 21 November 2015 at the Old Vic theatre.
Inspired by Dr. Seuss’s classic tale, The Lorax tells of a moustachioed and cantankerous critter who’s on a mission to protect the earth from the greedy, tree-chopping, Thneed-knitting businessman known only as The Once-ler.
