Everyone keeps on talking about how our world has changed forever because of the pandemic. But what could that new world look like if we were to actively think and also act to instigate change? Streaming live on the Young Vic’s Facebook page on Sunday October 4th, this first piece of live theatre since the Young Vic shut-down brings together a mouth-watering array of different talents including Jade Anouka, Marina Carr, Jasmine Lee-Jones, Ruth Madeley, Amy Ng, Stef Smith, Jack Thorne, Isobel Waller-Bridge and Steve Waters. Together they supply a programme of short pieces and speeches exploring what our futures may look like over the next 50 years.
For the first piece of live theatre at the YV since we closed in March, this free weekend of shows will feature short commissioned performances and activist speeches exploring what the next fifty years might hold.
