Arthur Miller double-bill to complete The Old Vic season

Robin Johnson

By Robin Johnson First Published 14 September 2018, Last Updated 14 September 2018

The Old Vic have announced the remainder of Matthew Warchus’ fourth season as Artistic Director, which will include an Arthur Miller double-bill, a world premiere by Lucy Prebble, and a special One Voice performance.

These productions form the second part of the season, and follow the currently playing hip-hop musical Sylvia, and previously announced shows: Annie-B Parson’s 17c; Emma Rice’s Wise Children; and the return of Jack Thorne’s adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

Visionary director Rachel Chavkin (who directed the acclaimed Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet Of 1812 on Broadway) will make her Old Vic debut directing Arthur Miller’s The American Clock (4 February – 20 March 2019). As The American Clock turns, fortunes are made and lives are broken. In New York City in 1929, the stock market crashed and everything changed. Miller’s ground-breaking play is about hope, idealism and a nation’s unwavering faith in capitalism.

This is followed by the previously announced run of Miller’s All My Sons (15 April – 8 June), co-produced with Headlong. With a stunning line-up – Jeremy Herrin directs Sally Field, Bill Pullman, Jenna Coleman and Colin Morgan – Miller’s play sees long buried truths forced to the surface, and the price of the American dream laid bare.

Closing the season is A Very Expensive Poison (dates to be announced) – a new play by Lucy Prebble, based on the book by Luke Harding. The espionage drama surrounds a modern-day assassination in the heart of London, and reimagines Harding’s jaw-dropping exposé of the events behind the tragic death of Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko.

Also announced today, Arinzé Kene (Girl From The North Country, Misty) will curate an evening of five specially commissioned monologues, Remembrance (Sunday 4 November, 8pm), at The Old Vic, shining a light on the poignant and surprising stories often hidden in the shadow of conflict.

And full casting has been confirmed for the return of A Christmas Carol, with the cast including Rosanna Bates, Ava Brennan, Jamie Cameron, Peter Caulfield, Oliver Evans, Eugene McCoy, Myra McFadyen, Frances McNamee, Alastair Parker, Michael Rouse, Tim van Eyken and Witney White. Stephen Tompkinson (Art, West End) will star as Ebenezer Scrooge.

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

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.
