Productions on the Old Vic’s YouTube channel every Thursday at 12noon
The Old Vic commissioned and presented a series of monologues in 2018 to mark the 70th anniversary of the NHS, curated by Lolita Chakrabarti and directed by Adrian Lester. Starting on 14 May at 12 noon, a brand new commission to mark the dedication of those in the will be released on The Old Vic’s YouTube channel.
The Old Vic in collaboration with the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff, present their brand new Playcrush Podcast hosted by the Sherman’s Artistic Director, Joe Murphy, as he talks to a host of well-known names about their favourite plays. The first episode will air on Acast on Monday 25 May at 10am and will feature Pride and 1917 actor George MacKay, with the second episode on Monday 1 June featuring the Olivier Award-winning Sheila Atim.
Supported by Hub Ambassadors Claire Foy and Matt Smith, the new Education Hub takes you behind-the-scenes at The Old Vic to hear from artists and performers, learn new skills and get employability tips. This has been especially created for young people, teachers, parents, guardians and carers who are home schooling, emerging talent, and anyone interested in theatre.
With the need to support youth employment more important now than ever, Front Line, the Old Vic’s unique employability programme, will continue to try to meet the needs of those struggling to find employment, experiencing inequality of opportunity or lacking confidence through the provision of new digital content. This scheme usually offers direct training opportunities with The Old Vic’s Front of House team, and will now offer two cohorts the chance to take part in an online programme of teamwork and customer service training, CV skills, cover letter writing and interview techniques plus weekly mentoring sessions and task work.
Applications for the upcoming cohorts will be open to 19–25 year olds from Lambeth and will open on Wednesday 20 May.
Every Wednesday at 3pm, award-winning playwright Ella Hickson will be leading conversations on Instagram Live with emerging talent from across different creative disciplines to gain an insight into what it means to be working in theatre today. In a series of six, the first conversation will be live with playwright and Old Vic 12 alumni Charlotte Josephine at 3pm on Wednesday 20 May.
