Event Details

‘Stories are wild creatures, the monster said. When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?’

With heartfelt thanks to the generosity of all the casts, creatives and companies involved, a selection of full length Old Vic archive recordings of selected productions since Matthew Warchus became Artistic Director in 2015 will be hosted for free on The Old Vic’s YouTube channel. This will give audiences the chance to revisit loved collector’s item productions, or watch for the first time.

The first show to air will be A Monster Calls, The Old Vic in association with Bristol Old Vic, Jonathan Church Productions & Global Creatures’ Olivier Award-winning production. First seen on stage in 2018, Patrick Ness’ piercing novel, inspired by an idea from Siobhan Dowd, was brought to The Old Vic by visionary director Sally Cookson. The production, featuring the original cast, will go live at 7pm on Friday 5 June and will be available to watch until Thursday 11 June.

The Old Vic Our Shows Screenings are supported by Royal Bank of Canada and PwC.

This adaptation is suitable for adults and children aged 10+.
