Abrahami made Young Vic Fellow

First Published 2 May 2013, Last Updated 2 May 2013

Director Natalie Abrahami has been appointed Genesis Fellow and Associate Director of the Young Vic theatre, following her work on the Southwark venue’s 2012 hit After Miss Julie.

Following in the footsteps of Joe Hill-Gibbins (The Changeling) and Carrie Cracknell (A Doll’s House) – with whom Abrahami was co-Artistic Director of the Gate theatre from 2007 to 2012 – the director will take up the post at the Young Vic as of this month.

The two-year grant awarded to Genesis Fellows will allow Abrahami to work closely with the Young Vic’s Artistic Director David Lan and enable her to develop her craft as a theatre director.

Lan said: “I am delighted to welcome Natalie back to the Young Vic. After Miss Julie demonstrated her powers as a director. I know it was just one illustration of what she will go on to achieve as a major artist of the theatre.  I’m deeply thankful to the Genesis Foundation for their long term support, enabling us to keep some of the very brightest talents right at the creative heart of the Young Vic.”

John Studzinski, founder and chairman of UK-based charity The Genesis Foundation – which develops artistic excellence in collaboration with leading arts organisations – said: “We’re very pleased that Natalie Abrahami is to be the new Genesis Fellow at the Young Vic. Natalie will follow Carrie Cracknell and Joe Hill-Gibbins on the programme, which has given these gifted young directors the chance to direct full-scale productions at the Young Vic. Natalie is an equally impressive talent and we all look forward with great interest to seeing her work in the coming year.”

Winner of the James Menzies-Kitchin Trust Award for Young Directors, Abraham’s directing credits elsewhere include Parallax at the Almeida, Pericles at the Regent’s Park Open Air, The Eleventh Capital at the Royal Court and Headlong’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
