Select socially distanced performances for Young Vic's Changing Destiny

The Young Vic have announced a number of socially distanced performances for their production of Changing Destiny which opens for previews on Monday 26 July.

Nine select performances will be staged with social distancing measures, beginning on 4 Aug, with all other performances being performed to full capacity audiences.

The production had been due to reopen tonight (Sat 24 July) but was forced to delay until Monday due to a member of the company needing to self-isolate.

Changing Destiny is Booker Prize-winner Ben Okri’s new adaptation of the 4,000-year-old Egyptian poem of Sinuhe the Warrior King, directed by Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah and designed by award-winning architect Sir David Adjaye.

The production is the first play to be staged at the Young Vic since it closed its doors in March 2020 and is part of their reopening season, which also includes the much awaited production of Hamlet starring Cush Jumbo.

The National Theatre have also announced their return to full capacity audiences, beginning with After Life on 27 July.
