King Lear

Open Run

One of William Shakespeare's most tragic plays returns to London in this new adaptation starring Glenda Jackson as the titular royal. When a once-proud monarch tries to divide his inheritance between his three daughters based on their perceived loyalty to him and their flattery, he descends into madness as he discovers that his family are just out to line their own pockets - and couldn't care less about him. So what is a king to do as the vultures circle?


December 10, 2016-February 18, 2017

Matthew Warchus' staging of Yasmina Reza's blockbuster satire on modern art and critic snobbery sees it celebrate 12 years as it returns to the Old Vic this December. Having run for an astonishing eight years in the West End, it remains a record-breaking play. Three friends find that their close relationship is highly tested when one of them buys a controversial piece of art. Whilst one extolls the virtues of the piece, another friend is scornful and determined to try make his friend "see sense".


February 25-June 24, 2017

Star Wars hero John Boyega makes his stage return in John Thorne's new adaptation of Georg Buchner's famously unfinished work. Poverty, pain and passion lead the poor Woyzeck down a perilous path of destruction in this uncompromising play. Often regarded as a masterpiece of the 20th Century, Woyzeck shows us the sharp, transformative power of exploitation and brutality, and how the consequences can change the course of one life forever.

Girl from the North Country

July 12-October 7, 2017

Connor McPherson's newest work must be something very pretty impressive to gain permission from famously protective folk icon Bob Dylan to use his songs on stage, so it's no secret that this world premiere play with songs (not a musical!) is a much anticipated part of the Old Vic's 2017 season.

Fanny and Alexander

September 7-November 25, 2017

This brand-new work sees the celebrated movie by Ingmar Bergman translated to the London stage by Stephen Beresford, and directed by Max Webster. Focusing on two siblings whose idyllic family existence is shattered with the death of their father, the titular pair and their loving mother have a struggle for happiness when she is forced to marry a strict bishop. A touching portrayal of family upheaval and the sanctity of childhood.
