Sea Wall

Until June 30, 2018

First premiering in 2008, Simon Stephen's Sea Wall received critical acclaim, with acting powerhouse Andrew Scott at the helm it seemed that this pairing was a match made in heaven. Sea Wall now returns in 2018, with Andrew Scott reprising his role, for two weeks only at The Old Vic.

A Monster Calls

July 7 - August 25, 2018

Thirteen-year-old Connor and his mum have been just fine since Connor's father moved to America, but now his mum is terribly sick and isn't getting any better. Throw in some over-bearing Grandparents and some bullish school kids and Connor feels all alone - until he meets the monster of course.

Sylvia Poster


September 1 - 22, 2018

One of the icons of the Suffragette movement and proto-feminist, Sylvia Pankhurst, gets the musical treatment in this fresh new piece from Katy Prince and Priya Parmar. Using an eclectic mix of song, dance, hip-hop, funk and soul, her incredible drive and advocacy for universal suffrage and the life behind the public figure are examined for a new generation.

October 8 - November 10, 2018

Emma Rice brings her unique and exquisite vision to the Old Vic this autumn with Wise Children. Based on the book by Angela Carter, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, and forgiveness. Throw in some music, mischief and some Shakespearian mistaken identity and you have yourself one of a thrill ride!
