The Jungle by Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson has won the South Bank Sky Arts Awards in the 2018 Theatre category, while at the same ceremony Benedict Cumberbatch received the coveted Outstanding Achievement Award.
The full cast has been announced for the West End transfer of Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson’s The Jungle, a National Theatre and Young Vic co-production with Good Chance Theatre, directed by Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin.
Directed by multi Olivier Award winner Stephen Daldry, the Young Vic production of The Inheritance by Matthew Lopez will transfer to the West End, playing a limited season at the Nöel Coward Theatre from 21 September 2018 (opening on 13 October).
Former artistic director of the Young Vic, director and playwright David Lan will be presented with the Special Award at the Olivier Awards 2018 ceremony on Sunday 8 April at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
In its incorporation of Howards End and the conversation between its fictional literary inspiration and its contemporary – Matthew Lopez – The Inheritance manages to create something wholly fresh and original about denial, truth and progress.
The Young Vic has announced casting, including – in the sole female role – Vanessa Redgrave, for the major world premiere of Matthew Lopez’s The Inheritance, which is directed by Stephen Daldry and runs 2 March to 19 May 2018, with a press day on 28 March.
