The Young Vic

The Young Vic theatre began its life as an offshoot of the Old Vic - the first residence of the Royal National Theatre under Laurence Olivier. 'Here', Olivier said, 'we think to develop plays for young audiences, an experimental workshop for authors, actors and producers.' From 2004-2006, the Young Vic went on ‘Walkabout', before returning to a redesigned theatre which continues to celebrate the Young Vic's provisional aesthetic and the perfect proportions of its auditorium.
