Young Vic explores green theatre

First Published 28 September 2011, Last Updated 14 February 2012

Never afraid of trying something new, the Young Vic’s revival of After Miss Julie, which opens in March next year, will be the venue’s first show to experiment with its use of electricity.

The first in a series of productions entitled Classics For A New Climate, the team reviving Patrick Marber’s drama – led by director Natalie Abrahami and designer Patrick Burnier – will investigate ways of creating theatre while taking as little electricity from the National Grid as possible.

Marber’s tragedy is full of its own electricity, telling a tale set in an England at the point of change. July 1945, the Labour Party wins a landslide election and Miss Julie’s world is turned upside down.

After Miss Julie is staged in the Young Vic’s Maria theatre, following a revival of Thomas Middleton and William Rowley’s Elizabethan tragedy The Changeling. The tale of love, sex and madness centres on Beatrice-Joanna, a woman so in love that she hires the repellent De Flores to kill the man her father would have her marry. When the deed is done, however, she discovers the true price of De Flores’s actions.

The Changeling, which runs from 26 January to 18 February, is directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins, the Deputy Artistic Director of the Young Vic whose credits include The Beauty Queen Of Leenane and The Glass Menagerie at the Waterloo venue and The Village Bike at the Royal Court.

The Changeling and After Miss Julie are the latest productions to be added to a Young Vic line-up including Michael Sheen in Hamlet and Patrick Stewart in Bingo.

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 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.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

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

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
