The Young Vic opened in 1970 as a place where young creatives – directors, designers, actors – could present great plays, both classics and new writing, at the lowest possible prices. The theatre was built specially and cheaply, with a rough, industrial atmosphere.
The intimate auditorium has a capacity of just 420 and seating is unreserved. There are no pillars or obstructions to your viewing and you will never be more than 7 rows away from the action. The venue has a bar split over 2 levels with an outside terrace. As well as drinks, it also serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and pre- and post-theatre food.
Disabled access to the building is through automatic doors at the front of the theatre. A lift will take you to the next level. Seating in the auditorium can be reserved for disabled patrons with particular needs. Some performances are audio described and others are captioned.
The nearest tube stations are Waterloo and Southwark. Car parking in the area is limited, but you can use the NCP at Upper Ground, Coin Street or Waterloo Station.
