The Young Vic Company

The Young Vic is two things: an idea and a building. Established in 1970 by Sir Laurence Olivier, the Young Vic is a theatre for everyone that remains true to its founding values and objectives:
- To produce great productions for audiences of all ages and backgrounds
- To nurture the talent of younger theatre professionals
- To develop a love of theatre amongst young people

The Young Vic is one of the most exciting theatres in the world. We run extensive training and development work with emerging theatre makers as well as a hugely successful and respected programme of work with young people, schools and the local community. We keep ticket prices as low as possible and our audience is one of the youngest and most diverse in Europe. Through our Teaching Participation and Research Programme we work with over 10,000 people and give away 10% of tickets for free every year.
